My clematis have bloomed for the last three years but this year they are glorious. All the colors are twined together and are putting on a grand show.
The white clematis blooms about two weeks earlier than the purple and pink but she is still going strong.
Love how all three colors are mingling here.
The photo doesn't do the royal purple color of this flower justice.
I once read somewhere that you have to have patience for perennials. It is said the first year they sleep, the second year they creep and the third year they leap. These were well worth waiting for.
