Hi everyone,

My 'The President' clematis has been blooming for a little while now but I finally got a picture taken of it in flower. Here it is! Enjoy!

Nice Brad. I like The President so well that I have two of them.

Very nice. I like the deep blue color. Gee, now that may be one I'll have to add next year :-).

Thanks everyone!

Julia, sorry to burst your bubble but the flowers are actually more of a dark purple. They look like they might have some blue in them in this picture though. This one has a funny story behind it. I first thought it was Reiman, since it was labeled a Reiman (from Lowe's; a good friend bought it for me I think two years ago) pruned it as such and it's done great but it's definitely not a Reiman since it's blooming at this time of year.

Moonwolf I'm sooo happy that your "Reiman" or whatever one it is, is coming back nicely!

Congrats! It's looks like a keeper :)

Thanks, kentstar!

I'm glad it's made such a wonderful recovery! I only wish I had room for more clematis vines, especially a sweet autumn. I think I'll go browse at Brushwood lol.

I call that color blue violet. It's a great color to have in the garden.
