Dug it up, put it in the compost pile. Maybe it will finally attract insects.

Went out in the morning to check on my babies and saw this bloom. The color is almost a black purple! Beautiful! Excited to see more of them bloom and then have the Golden Showers roses bloom in front of it!

Went to the garden center on the Little Creek Naval Amphibious Base and found two Jackmanii Superba Clematis. Snagged them immediately and brought them home. No one else in the area had them for sale.
