I have a Clematis, purple and white, growing up a rack beside my house. It is lovely when it's in full bloom. It is always loaded with flowers.When the seeds fall off onto the porch I sweep them back into them back into the bed.

Impressive flowers. This is its second year and it has had 8 flowers and looks much healthier than it did the first year, when it only managed two flowers. We have other clematis cultivars which seem more vigorous than this, but this one has the most impressive flowers.
