|Clematis 'Henryetta' on a trellis in the Driveway Garden this week.|
This clematis is a not a great climber... in fact it is more of a mound-maker. I imagine it crawling slowly over old stumps in its native habitat. That meant that it took a a little more persistence to make sure that it was tied into the small trellis in this tightly planted bed, instead of flopped over somewhere underneath everything. But it was worth the effort! I love its pendulous flowers.
|Clematis 'Henryetta' is planted over Lavandula augustifolia 'Munstead Wood', Geranium 'Orion' and many others.|

So many lovely clematis blooming at our house this week!
