Thank y'all. I forgot to trim Mme Julia Correvon and happy I did. It bloomed higher on the holly.I think I am finally getting the benefit of 3-4 year old plants and maybe a cold winter. Oh yes..and putting down some fertilizer!
Oh I can't believe I have several blooms of Purpurea Plena Elegans While not doubles, still great to see.
I used to think fall was my favorite season, but the clematis this year has really made spring amazing!
