I have 4 Jackmanii clematis in my front garden. Not the most exciting one, but it sure puts on a show every year and blooms a long time. I love it right with the orange and purple Loreto and purple-red Blackjack lilies.

I need to get it resecured to the trellis a little better.

I also have some Jacks. That looks beautiful with the near by blooms. Yes, doesn't it feel like Jack is unappreciated.

Newbee Question! What are the spidery looking round balls that grow on the clematis?

Those are the seed heads that are left after the petals fall off the flowers. I try to remove them if I have the time so they put their energy into reblooming instead of making seeds. Not sure it really makes a lot of difference.
