Nice photos. You have quite a collection! I particularly like the color combinations in the first photo.

What is in the obelisk in your purple bed?


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

Nhbabs: I'm glad you enjoyed the photos. I bought my obelisk(s) from our local gardening center, Pettiti's. They are built out of rod iron and are welded to one piece. No plastic involved!

RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

Sorry I was unclear. What clematis is growing in the obelisk in your purple bed? I like how it looks, even not blooming.

Betty Corning, Viola, and Arabella at least, though others may have wandered into the photo as well.

Thank you nhbabs, for posting pictures. I really enjoy seeing Clematis growing through bushes. Unfortunately, I have little space in my garden to raise large shrubs and trees.

On the obelisk I have two clematis: Pohjanael and Sir Trevor Lawrence.

roseberrie, your Omishiro looks lovely. I have one in my holding bed to plant this spring. Would you please share your plant's siting. It seems to be doing very well there.

RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

It has been fun to look at my clematis photos of the past few years during this extremely cold weather and see how they have grown and increased in blooms.

Enjoyed seeing all of your photos. The Candy Apple iris brings out the center coloring of Multi-blue nicely. I am just beginning to try clematis in shrubs and was good to see how one looks in a hydrangea.

Here are some others from my gardens:

RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

All the clematis photos are beautiful!! But I have an OT question for pmermakov ...What is the bulb plant that is growing with Pink Champaign? The spikey pink. Love it! Thanks


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

mnwsgal, sorry, I've been away hope you see this! my Omoshiro is in full sun , and so far it has been very happy!


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

Thanks, roseberrie, it looks very happy there. Can hardly wait to see mine blooming as well. I find its pink blossoms very attractive.


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

you are very welcome, glad to help. Your other clematis are lovely, I especially like your Piilu and the combo in the last picture.
Omoshiro is a lovely clematis and you will be very happy with it, I just let it go on it's own and it very nicely arranged itself on the trellis, but others I seem to need help in get them up there attractively. Maybe it is just because they need to get more established.

RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

The best post ever! Of course my eyes zoomed in on the iris combo. Omoshiro and Perrin's Pride are new names to me. Zowee.


 o

Omoshiro


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

Thanks Neptune for a look at Omoshiro's massive bloom!


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

memama_gayle - I think the bulb with Pink Champagne is Allium schubertii.

Unbelievably healthy looking Clematis everyone! Mine get ravaged by slugs and snails as soon as they start shooting so I don't get anything like this sort of show.


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

floral,

There's this product available in the UK, called NemaSlug. It uses predatory beneficial nematodes to control slugs and snails naturally. It might be worth a try if you are having a problem with them.

Most of my clems are young, but I did get a picture of a Serenata bloom.

Beautiful clematis, Neptune. Please, where are you located in the U.S.?


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

mnwsgal, I live in Sofia, Bulgaria


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

Thanks, Neptune. Looks like you have a perfect climate for growing clematis. Are the trellis attached to the buildings or self supporting?
I think I will move my Rebecca to a full sun position which may bring out the red coloring like yours.


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

Steve, thanks for sharing your photo of Serenata. Nice to see a new to me variety. Though clematis are slow to mature the show is worth the wait for me.

pmermakov, your clematis are amazing. You have a great collection..many I have not seen before. I am curious where you buy your clematis. Can you recommend a mail order site? Can you recommend a fertilizer? All the pictures on this post are breath-taking. A real breath of Spring! Thanks, Lesley

RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

This is one of my favorite clematis posts. I was looking for different structures for clematis and I think this shows just about every way there is to grow them. Beautiful Clematis everyone! Thanks for sharing.


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

What a great thread. I have 3-5 clematis but this inspires me to add one every year. Thanks for sharing such great photos.


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

Wow. I have 2 clematis now & this thread made me want to go buy 1 of every kind. You all have some amazing ones. These pictures are gorgeous.


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

OMG ! I'm so envious of all these beauties. Fabulous! Iv never been lucky in the UK with them. Have 2 now in I'm in the States. Not looking that good...fingers crossed they will get better. Do you find buying a bigger plant is the best way to go??


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

I have bought gallon sized plants for many years as don't want to wait several years for blooms and I have been able to get many on sale for the same or less cost than buying mail order plants. I also buy smaller mail order plants to get varieties that I don't find in my area. And I start clematis seeds and grow on the seedlings knowing that they will take years before much bloom.

I don't buy the very large expensive pots of clematis as would rather buy several gallon sized ones instead.

You have to decide if you have the time to wait for smaller plants to grow and bloom, on an average three years. And how many plants you want and your gardening budget.

I am a collector with over 90 varieties. If I only wanted a few plants I would buy gallon pot plants.


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

Lesmc - I have many of the same ones as pmermakov, and since I live in a rural area with not a lot of clematis selections at local nurseries, I've gotten most of mine mail order. I have bought from Brushwood Nursery, Hummingbird Farm, and Silver Star Vinery. All the plants I have received from them have been well-grown plants of a size that start blooming the second year in my garden.


 o
RE: Spring Fever -- Please post Pictures!!

shaz01, you don't say where you are located, and that makes a big difference. Since I am in zone 6 in Texas I have a much longer growing season, and regardless of the size of plant I purchase I have always had blooms the first year. Regardless, it is that three year rule we all talk about. The first year it sleeps, the second it creeps, and the third year it just leaps up the trellis. Many of mine are in the fourth year, and the blooms are just loaded, regardless of how the plant looks. We have had hot dry winds, and the plants don't look great, but they are loaded with blooms. I have blooms on some I have just planted, but the root system on some I ordered were just like a two year old plant. I have had large plants in two gallon pots that have struggled the first year I planted them. I think the variety and location have a lot to do with how well they do. Also consider, sun, part sun ect, which I am still working on. Good luck with yours! Debra
