what a beauty! Thanks for posting - and reminding me why I started growing clematis. Mine are all in their second or third year, I can't wait for them to start blooming.

Thanks for sharing, Joe! How tall is the fence? She seems to exceed it. How tall is she? Do you do anything special with fertilizer, etc, to be so successful? Thx.

River,the fence is about 6 and a half feet.But it's OK because this variety is one that should be cut back to about 18 inches in the very early spring.Growing conditions are pretty normal except for good mulch at the base and a little 10-10-10 in early spring. Joe
