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.
