Nelly Moser up a crabapple

Cincinnati (area), OH(Zone 6a)

I'm going to send ole Nelly (clematis) up a crabapple tree. It should be wonderful when it gets another year or two on it.

That will look great. I love it when people have clematis growing in other plants. I think it's really pretty planted with climbing roses.

I think this is the perfect vine for this sort of thing because it's small and easy to deal with if it goes where you don't want it.

Nelly Moser is one of the prettiest clematises, what color is your crabapple? I have a darker pink one blooming now and later I have one called Bechtel that will bloom, it is lighter pink and double blossoms.

Yummy, like a flower parfait. :)

I planted Clematis vitacella Polish Spirit by Viburnum prunifolium 'Black Haw' not realizing that the Black Haw is slow growing and Polish Spirit is quite vigorous, so don't know if that will work. Donna

Progress! She's worked her way up about 4.5 feet now :)

Do you have any photos that are more recent than 2003? I'd love to see them.

How far away from the roots of the tree did you plant your Nelly Moser? I want to do this with a couple of dogwood trees in the spring. I'd appreciate any pointers you can throw my way.

TIA,

Yes, I'd love to see a more recent photo! I didn't notice the date and it excited me to see that the couple have years have passed, so she will be lovely this year, eh? Pretty please, pictures?
