Clematis May 2014
Time for a new thread.
My oshiomo ( not spelled right) is blooming but one stem just up and started drooping, buds and all. I see no sign of vole damage. The rest looks fine. Bloom must be 4 inches across
All the clematises are beautiful and your gardens are so restful looking. You might try and rest sometime! LOL
I am waiting till the end of the month when that pool is open...lol I will be resting while I float in the water...lol
Right! Do it! Get take-out for dinner that night. All the rest can be exhausting!
But it's true. I insist!
I'm more tired tonight, after working outside just 4 hours, than days I work 8 hours.
I'm older. I'm right. Listen to me! LOL
I like that Happy. It fit in there perfect. I want to find some old fence to do just that.
What a great idea......all the photos look wonderful......still waiting for a bloom here......most of the clems look fine, but I noticed wilt on one of them....I, too, cut the clem down.....I think it was Niobe, but I'm not sure....
Wrong I'd on one of my pics, it was miss bate man not ugly duckling. Now I am trying to figure out where I moved duckling to..lol
I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day. I couldn't have asked for a better one, my DS graduated from HS on Saturday😁
Here are a few blooms from my garden. #1 Clematis Arabella with peony Kansas in front and Bernice Carr. #2 Best Wishes. #3 Moonfleet. #4 Arabella. # 5 Arabella with peony Show Girl on the left and Wladislawa on the right.
Congratulations to the graduate!
Beautiful photos, as always, Annette. Lots of buds here but no blooms yet.
Very beautiful! I especially love seeing a mature Arabella. Mine went in last year and is up, but I have yet to see her bloom in my garden.
All but two of mine are up so far. Sizaja Ptitsa seems to have disappeared, too much competition, I think. Venosa Violacea may yet show up, her roots are quite shaded. Jackmanii has several stems, some are at least 4' long and climbing nicely up the arbor. Nellie Moser is not far behind. Of the 2 Veronica's Choice, one already has a bud and the other is climbing like mad. Yippee!
It is pure joy to watch them growing.
Liberation (I think) escaped the outside of the dog's pen and is now inside. I'm going to layer it since it's so big. The only other one that it could be is montana grandiflora. In any event, I'm happy about it.
Thank you both. Glad to hear that the northern gardens will soon be getting some blooms.
Arabella truly is a joy to see in bloom, and this will continue all summer.
For some reason, my Liberation continues to remain short, but I'm getting another flush of blooms, and it's really noticeable thanks to the huge size of the flowers.
I am free from cooking till September, so now I can do the garden stuff . Keep arranging the hostas and impatients to shadier places, In this corner they are getting morning sun, shade in the afternoon from the James tree, (Bloodgood JM)Sunset clematis is beutiful and always a good bloomer. In my rose bush I have a mockingbird nest with 3 babies, mother is getting used to me being around. Etelka
Still waiting for a bloom here, but happy to see buds at this point.....very pretty photos from all of you.....
All nice photos. Love your shady spot, Etelka. The coleuses work so well there.
Thank you for the welcome! I'm exited to become part of this forum.
Here are the best pics I could get of my one clem. The bloom is facing northeast so I should take its pic in the morning, but that seems to be my sleeping time, so here's the afternoon version.
(Postponed sending while trying to fix photos; sorry if it doesn't work.)
Lovely clematis, turtles.
Marie - the first one looks like The President to me. All great photos! That bird bath is great!
Thanks,I love seeing the rest of these pictures, it makes me want more. I want different colors and ones that bloom more in the summer.
I just ordered, Sweet summer love. Has anyone had any experience with this one?
That's just it; I have exactly none idea on the name. Thankfully, it's the only one I have so the only one I have no id for! From now on out I hope to preserve a semblance of organization. This one is only one year old with me. Pretty soon I'm going to feel like I can start planting in the ground.
No experience with Sweet Summer Love, Marie.
Be brave, turtles!
Take another photo of it in the sunshine and maybe that will help us identify it for you.
Marie, my Gypsy Queen blooms early summer & then in fall when not too much else is blooming.....
I will check that one out. The sweet summer love, they say blooms all summer. We will see. I am hoping the quart size is really a good size and not a young plug put in a qiuart pot...lol
That's happened to me more often than I ever expected, Marie.
Amazingly, they all survived and have done very well. No one was more surprised than I was.
Just saw this ad and it has to be a plug. The shipping is probably double the cost of the "bargain" $5.00 clematis!
