Clematis


 I don't take care of my roses and a few years ago my 'New Dawn' roses on the side gate died.  I really like this rose so I bought a new one and planted it with this deep purple Clematis.  This is the first year that they grew high enough to cover the arch over the gate and bloomed together. I love how they compliment each other.
The colors work together nicely and stand out against the house colors.
I plant these each year too.  Candy Corn vines put me in an Autumn mood.
This clematis covers my cistern. 
 The lower gardens are like a jungle right now.

Lily pads cover the upper pond.
The Weeping Beech is huge.
 My fountain is up and running too.

Beautiful! Is that plant actually called a candy corn plant?
You have so much area to play with. I think I have only 1/18 of it. Really! I have a very small yard. The roses are so gorgeous with the clematis. Your gardens should be featured in a magazine.
Beautiful as always!

Only one of my clematis flower right now, one seems to be dead and the third has just started to grow.

Have a greaT day!
