My Long Clematis Pergola

I love the flowering vine called clematis, and over the years, I’ve grown many varieties of this lovely plant. Soon after I bought my Bedford, New York farm, I built a long pergola along the front carriage road leading up to my home, specifically for clematis. I have clematis growing all over it - all in shades of blue. Each year, the flower display looks more and more beautiful.

On both sides of my clematis pergola, we planted lots of stunning bulbs and perennials. It is looking absolutely spectacular this season, so I thought I would share some photos - enjoy.
