My Resurrected Clematis

This little clematis in the photo is not supposed to be blooming this time of year. Normally, it blooms in the spring at the same time as another one I have growing in my garden. I do have an Autumn Clematis that blooms at this time of year. Perhaps I have too many clematises and other plants growing because this lovely little plant kind of got lost this year. I transplanted it last year because it had become crowded, and then this year I neglected to keep all the weeds away from the tender transplant and it failed to bloom. Recently, I got rid of all the weeds, fed it, put down some mulch, and hoped it would bloom next spring. It surprised me my blooming now. I promised it I would take better care of it from now on and hope it’s spectacular in the spring.

It is lovely to get one more spot of color as other blooms are beginning to fade away.

@pjmurphy I visited the house that I'm renting out to others last year and spotted a vine that was flowering large pink blooms. I knew it to be a clematis right off cause my grandma grew one when I was a kid. I felt like the place was welcoming me when I saw that beauty.

It is a beautiful flowering plant. I don't think I would have much luck with it here with all the deer.

I live in the woods with lots of deer. They've never bothered my clematises. But they love lots of the other things I grow. Clematis may have their day yet.

What a lovely and beautiful flowering plant you. In our country, many plantitas and plantitos are coming out. They're plants enthusiasts who are obliged to raise plants and flowers due boredom in pandemic.

Gardening certainly does help with boredom in pandemic.
