The Clematis

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.

  1. That clematis is a gorgeous colour! I have never seen one grow up anything other than a wall or a fence before. It’s quite striking in the middle of the yard like that.

Have your say...
