I do not know the names of this clematis. I thought it was perhaps Josephine but it does not have that huge double centre in it. This clematis was planted several years ago at the base of our arbor. It comes up very nicely each year and then promply wilts never to be seen again. This year I suspect it did better because we had over the winter the niger seed feeder just above it and the seed that was strewn by the birds piled up on the ground just above the sleeping clematis. The heat or insulated properties of the seed created a suitable environment for the spring sprouting. Anyway, I am just happy to see this pretty little thing in bloom. I hope I get more than one bloom but I will just enjoy. I hope you are having some surprises in your garden too.
I am contributing this clematis as my humble offering for Macro Saturday here.
