The Clematis in Our Garden

 I'm trying to get caught up showing you the plants blooming in our garden, in between the other things I write about.  I've almost missed the Clematis season, though there are still a few blooms out there.  We have 8 Clematis plants altogether, but two bloom in spring, and I'll share 4 of the others with you which are still in bloom a bit now.

Two of them, one white and one purple, are growing on a trellis against the shed, with two almost yellow Hostas at their feet.

Personally I find that Clematis get more interesting the closer you look at them.

It's amazing what an iphone can do.  Mrs. F.G. is the photographer or all of these.

In this photo you can actually see the difference between the outer stamens and the inner pistils.

This Clematis grows on the side of the house.

I've always said 'Clem-a-tis', but I often hear 'Clem-atis'.  Take your pick.

Two hot days here over the weekend, hoping for cooler but still sunny next week.

  2. Lovely. I've never seen a white one before. Next spring I'm planning to plant a bunch of them on the east side of the deck. There is one on the south west corner of the back porch but it doesn't like the location so much.

  4. These are beautiful! I have always heard it pronounced cle-MA-tis. In any event, they are sure pretty, up close and personal. :-)

  5. Hot here these day. The humidity does me in. I’m with you for the pronunciation of clematis.

  6. I like how the 2 Clematis intertwine and bloom at the same time. So pretty. I'm still looking for a C. Bijou.

  9. Your Clematis flowers are sure doing a lot better than ours. With all these tall pine trees around us I don't think ours get enough sunlight.

  10. They look splendid. I was intending to buy a Clematis this year but didn't get around to it before the virus struck. I'm a clem-A-tis man too.

  14. I planted several clematis in my old garden in Missouri. Everyone else's flourished, mine just fizzled. The last one I planted I promised God that if this one died I would never plant another to just kill another plant. The next summers I had blossoms a plenty.
