Purple Clematis

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 25 July 2018 in Plant & Nature.

This clematis vine grew quite large in the spring and then with the excess rain in May, it died. I cut the vine down and then it started to grow again and has just started to bloom. Now we are having another week of rain so I am not sure what will happen.

I like these clematis blossoms. I wish I had some growing at my place now. We had to leave a fine collection of them behind when we moved.

Gorgeous colors and textures captured in this shot!! And I love the veining detail in the petals and foliage!
I've been seeing the news about the rains in the east and I hope you're not as severe as what they are showing in some parts.

@Steven: Saturday we had 4 inches of rain. I have lost count since then but it has rained almost constantly everyday through yesterday. Today it has finally been dry but cloudy with thunderstorms for later today. First we had 3 weeks of no rain and now lots of rain! Too many extremes!

These are such a pretty color and wonderful star shape.
I wish you could send a little of your rain our way. We are so dry, and having record breaking heat of 101, and even up to 109.
