General Sikorski Clematis

Clematis flowers are the aristocrat of all climbers
I purchased this Clematis last spring and it bloomed
in July and then again in late August. It will grow
up to 12 feet high if it has that much climbing space.
It is very hardy and has dark lavender flowers with
tints of red on the petals. And the center has cream-
colored anthers with 8-9 inch flowers.

Clematis vines like shaded "feet" and sunny tops,
so I place a stone over the part that is in the ground
and let it climb to the sun.

Isn't it beautiful? Do you have any Clematis vines?
Please leave me a comment if you do and tell me
what you have and how much you love it.
