Flowering Clematis

Clematis are among the most decorative and spectacular of all the flowering vines - it's always exciting to see them bloom year after year.

I have grown many varieties of this wonderful plant. Soon after I bought my Bedford, New York farm, I built a long pergola along the front carriage road leading to my home, where I could grow lots of clematis. I concentrated on creating a palette of blue and purple flowering cultivars. And every summer, they provide a graceful and colorful display.
