sharing my experience with sweet autumn clematis with photos

Since we work during the day, we enjoy our backyard in the evenings for the most part, so I decided to try for a moon garden. I absolutely loved the photos of sweet autumn clematis and wanted my own. I'm in zone 5b fyi.

In 2007 I tried planting them in a pot with and obelisk (built by my husband).

It didn't come back over the winter. So I gave up for a few years.

I tried again in 2010 on the same obelisk by the fence. It came back the following year! This is September 18, 20011, the plant is 2 years old.

And this was last week, the sweet autumn clematis is 3 years old. I'm so happy how it looks. I actually have 2 of them on this fence, I'll try to get another photo of the whole area. And I love how it looks on the black fence, I don't see that too often. You can't see the obelisks anymore, the plant has completely covered it!

Your photos are excellent examples of how Sweet Autumn clematis can light up the night. And the wonderful fragrance is a bonus! Thanks for sharing.
