The unofficial start to summer is now here! Yeah I can hardly believe it. We have had such a slow go at getting started this season with all the rain and cold weather. I think though that now we should have the nicer weather and quite possibly it seems like it is here to stay. With all the nice weather that we have upon us it also is bringing out the best in the spring blooming perennials.
Clematis ‘Vino‘ is one of the first Clematis vines to blooming my garden. This shorter sized variety is perfect for a small obelisk or mailbox garden. ‘Vino‘ blooms a magenta/ purple color in my part shade location. Keep in mind that Clematis can bloom differently from state to state and location to location. The bloom color on clematis can be varied by the sun/shade location, the amount of humidity that is in your area along with the time of year that it is blooming. Clematis may bloom one color in the spring and then rebloom a slightly different shade in the late summer. Clematis are a wonderful choice for an added interest in vertical gardening.
