Beautiful Clematis Blooms

The clematis is blooming so beautifully here at my Bedford, New York farm this season.

I have always loved these flowering vines and over the years, I have grown many varieties of this exquisite plant. When I moved to this 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 - stunning lavender, blue, and purple clematis. I also have some growing across the carriage road on the trunks of the majestic bald cypress trees.
