I have had these clematis for years now, but this is the first year they've ever really bloomed. For the last three years since I planted them, something has always happened to them. Usually it's my uncle running over them with a lawn mower before I can get them to start climbing the pole. One year I had them started climbing the pole and then my mom killed them with the weed eater. I'm so glad that they are finally living up to their potential!
Author Note: I took these pictures on Sunday, but had internet troubles and couldn't get them posted.
