This is the first year for 'WN" flowering in my garden. I bought her/him ? last Autumn at a garden center sale you could not pass up .. not clematis for $2 .. not these gorgeous beauties. My main concern was that I am always a little nervous about how they will do. Sometimes I just completely forget they need a little extra attention .. some times they get a little BONE DRY .. yikes ! .. I know .. I feel VERY guilty when that happens .. but so far, so good with the new kids on the block .. This deep rich purple is amazing. I can't get just the right colour to show up in the pictures. If you are familar with this one you already know how beautiful this 'royal' purple comes across. I am a fan, and I hope to keep it going a long time to come, in my garden !
