Hey Happy Valentine's Day everybody !
It is snowing here yet again but when I think of plants I feel better ? haha
I stumbled on this clematis truly by accident a few weeks ago .. fell head over heels for it immediately.
There was just something about the way it was edged in a darker colour ... hum ? ... some what like my Eyeliner lily adventure .. it must be that kind of year I am thinking ?
Finding information about this clematis hasn't been easy.
I do have the blurb from Vesey's Seeds one of the Canadian companies I buy from occasionally.
It was pure luck that they have it since I can't find it on any other of the mail order companies I use.
This is what they have to say about it :
" Stunning single and semi-double flowers have dramatically pointed petals that are silvery white edged in plum purple. Blooms almost the entire season and is an excellent choice for growing in containers with support."
They also suggest starting this one out in a pot so I can keep a close eye on it to make sure all of it's needs are met ... thinking back to last year ? I wish I had done that with my new clematis then too !
Why is it you find this information out after the fact usually ?
In any case .. here is a picture of the beauty.
