Pretty in Pink



Once more about this beauty:

Years ago I arranged a plant / seedling exhange happening in my garden. One of the guests, a clematis enthusiast Timo, donated me a tiny clematis seedling. It has proved to be enourmously vigorous and strong. It is a seedling of Clematis Constance and is pretty pink and flowers abundantly. It grows up till 7 meters along the ladders of our house. The only disadvantage is that its branches get very messy and I cut the plant down very often but there she is again - reaching the sky.... Clematis on the Web says it is semi-double, but mine is not. It is not a pure variety and must have been cross-pollinated with some other variety. Allthough messy, beautiful she is!







It is so cold and windy & rainy! I’ll take a warm blanket and put my woollen socks on.
Reading is the best today - I do wish that June brings summer temperatures!


Thank you Mascha for the advice!

    1. This clematis belongs to the Atragene group, so it flowers in the spring. Thank you for visiting Ida!

    1. Thank you Sara. I don't know what this clematis has in its genes, but it is maintenance-free: no watering, no fertilizing - it just keeps growing and blooming. I'll cut it down one of these days - again. Next summer there shall be less blooms.

  17. Eine ganz ähnliche Clematis wuchs bei unserem Nachbar, leider musste sie beim Renovieren entfernt werden.
    Wunderschöne fotos hast du gemacht.

  18. Bezaubernde Glöckchen hat die Clematis...den weißen Rand finde ich so apart. Meine C.alpinas und auch die C.montanas sind schon durch, aber es kommen ja noch einige. :-))
    Hab ein schönes Wochenende - lieben Gruß, Marita

  21. Liebe Riitta,
    das ist eine sehr schöne Clematis. Das Pink gefällt mir ausgesprochen gut und es ist auch sehr gut, wenn eine Pflanze robust ist, dann hat man mehr Freude an ihr.
    Ich wünsche Dir noch einen wunderschönen Sonntag und hoffe, dass bei euch auch die Sonne scheint.

    Viele liebe Grüße
    Wolfgang
