Clematis and Fuzzy Dogs!

It is still too early and cold for most Clematis. If you see any for sale at the garden centers, most likely they have been forced in a greenhouse.

We stopped at Luscher Farms in Lake Oswego, Or. this week to check in on the Clematis Collection and see if anything was blooming yet.

The Clematis in the 'Atragene' group are in full bloom outside in the garden.
This variety is called 'Constance'. 
Hey, that's almost like my name, Constanza!
These Clematis actually need a cold winter and do well down to zone 3.
We love the way they have been trained into this spring blooming Viburnum.
The shrub provides the support for the vine and hides the woody part of the vine, which is never very attractive.

Plants are for sale on Fridays, 10 am-Noon. Also, there are plant sales on special weekends, check the link to the website.

In other news, we are getting Aire-Cuts this Friday. Nephew Murphy is getting his hair done too!
One last look at Fuzzy Dogs....
See you soon, all spiffy and sleek.
Wyatt and Stanzie


  1. Those flowers are beautiful! Of course you know how much we love looking at Airedale Pics too though! BOL!!

  2. Oh no not Aire-cuts at the fur stealers. Run and hide pals. Have a tremendous Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. Love the Clematis! Also Stanzie's crown of daisies.,,Very chic! Some bulbs are peeking out here finally. :) We got our winter hairs cut last Friday and our mommy found clothes for us to wear, much to our chagrin.
    Smooches from pooches,

  4. We do love the fuzzy look....and the groomed look. Stanzie, we especially love your daisy hat!

    Our plants are all drought resistant and thrive best with neglect.

    XXXOOO Bella & Roxy

  5. Now that's one flower that our mom isn't growing in her garden. They are sure beautiful!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  6. I love the Clematis. Here in Denmark they don't bloom yet. It's to cold for the moment.

  7. that first one is beautiful - we will have to look for them when it warms up

  8. Hope your Aire Cuts visit to the Spa goes well. We like that name too, Constanza. WE think they named it after YOU.

  9. Beautiful shots. It is so nice to see flowers!!!

  10. We have some clematis in our yard too. Of course it's too early for it to even think of coming out of the ground yet.

  11. Those are pretty! I don't think I've seen those blooming around me.

  12. Those flowers are beautiful!!! But Mommy says she thinks they're on the TOXIC list, so we don't have any. They might not even bloom in Florida because of the heat.

    Oh No...Don't let them steal your furs!!!

  13. Off to the spa, eh? Those flowers won't look as good as YOU!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  14. Fuzzy dogs, those flowers are beautiful

  17. We do have one clematis plant here - Mom says she doesn't know how it survives, but it does. That's a cool idea to mix it in with a viburnum. So now we need to get a viburnum:) Happy Cute-Aire Day, oh we mean Aire-Cut Day.

    Woos - Phantom, Ciara, and Lightning

  18. Those flowers are very pretty, although it's a shame some are forced up in a greenhouse!
    Aww, Stanzie looks very pretty with her daisy chain there, can't wait to see your trims!
    Pippa :)

  19. We love celmatis and have that blue one that likes cold weather...in fact we and the moose cut it back every year but it comes right back and spreads like wildfire! It is a favorite of the moose in the winter.
    My Godmother lived in Lake Oswego, such a beautiful place.
