The Jackmanii Clematis out front started blooming two days ago. They’re growing on the Leaning Tower of 27th Street, a makeshift trellis made up of a metal trellis that wasn’t tall enough with a wood trellis on top. The wood trellis broke from the weight so I reinforced it with three bamboo stakes, all wired together in a most haphazard manner. then I added a wood star to one side and the plants have started climbing the star now too. In another week or so this clematis will really start to show off.
