For several years I tried to grow a Clematis. I would buy the package of the started vine a foot or so tall. I did this twice. Finally, two years ago I bought a bigger potted one, about two feet tall. It has taken nicely. It is hard to not trim it back in the Spring, but all that dead looking vine comes back to life. Crazy thing about his one was I thought I bought white....hmmmm, not looking very white here, is it?
A close up...heh, Sandy recognize that little angel?
