My Blooming Clematis

The clematis is blooming so beautifully this season.

I've always loved these flowering vines, and over the years I have grown many varieties of this lovely plant. When I purchased my Bedford, New York farm, I knew I wanted to build a long, winding pergola, where I could grow lots of beautiful clematis. After the pergola was constructed, I concentrated on creating a palette of blue-flowering cultivars. Each year, the floral display gets better and better. This summer, the blooms are just spectacular - every post is wrapped in sparkling shades of lavender, blue and purple.
