This photo shows one flower opened on my purple Clematis. It will have many flowers once again this year. I plan on moving it somewhere to climb better. Where do you have your Clematis climbing? I am thinking of placing it at my mailbox. It could climb the pole etc and look beautiful. HAPPY POSTINGS FROPM GRANDPA BOB!!~

It certainly is beautiful. I love it! And until you did this discussion, I had never heard of a Clematis.

They are beautiful plants. They are a climbing ivy type of flower. HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB!!~

As we probably all know by now I don't have a green thumb and don't have the pretty flowers like you do. I think it would be real pretty growing up a pole where your mail box is.

I have an arbor at the front of my yard, spanning the walkway. One side has a purple clematis called Polish Spirit and the other side has a pink climbing rose, a cutting from one my uncle took from the climbing rose my mother had growing on the garden shed when I was a child. (My uncle took cuttings with him wherever he moved.) So, mom and dad stand guard, so to speak. (My mother's name was Rose, btw.)

Lucky you. Mine is just one of those cheap tubular metal ones that come in a box and you have to piece it all together, one 12" length at a time. Sometimes they're sold with lights for weddings.

I love purple. And it is a gorgeous shot. We don't have Clematis. But we do have some very pretty day lillies right outside our front door.

Hi GRANPA BOB, That is so beautiful, I have a clamatis like that but mine is a little lighter shade, I have it against a fence but it seem to have climbed on to my apple blossom tree, but I have 8 flowers on them. Tamara

i love clematis. When we moved house about 15 years ago, i left behind some beautiful plants, including clematis. we moved in February so I waited to see what would come up in our new garden. i was delighted when a honeysuckle, a passion flower ( something I had tried to grow before , but had failed miserably , so i was well pleased) and also 2 beautiful clemmies emerged as climbers. 1 large purple flower probably the President and one slightly smaller. they are not quite in flower yet, its usually a little later in the summer, but they are glorious when they emerge. I must take pictures when they bloom and put them on mylot.
