My Blooming Clematis at the Farm

The clematis is blooming beautifully at the farm this season.

I’ve always loved these flowering vines, and over the years I have grown many varieties of this plant. When I bought my Bedford, New York property, I knew I wanted to build a long, winding pergola and have clematis growing all over it. After the pergola was constructed, I concentrated on creating a palette of blue-flowering cultivars. Each year, the floral display gets better and better - and this summer, nearly every post is completely wrapped in stunning shades of lavender, blue and purple clematis.
