Silver Star Vinery Display Gardens will be open TWO weekends this year.  The first is THIS COMING WEEKEND (June 13 and 14)!  Then again on July 11 and 12.  Debbie’s display gardens are pure Clemaniac Heaven.  If you live in the Pacific Northwest or have a chance to visit this part of the world, you need to see this garden!  Plus Debbie will be selling many varieties of her big fat healthy plants.

I took the photos included here at Debbie’s Garden Opens in 2013 and 2014.  I have the honor of being a display garden guide/question answerer again this year on July 11–Debbie and other helpers will be on hand to answer questions and sell plants during all four garden open days.

Silver Star Vinery is located about 40 minutes drive from I-5 up into the foothills of the Cascades–turn off I-5 in  Battleground, Washington (just north of Vancouver).  You can get directions by contacting Silver Star Vinery.

Clematis of the Month for May 2015

May’s Winner

May Winner--Clematis Cezanne adorning an oversized windowbox.

May Winner–Clematis CEZANNE adorning an oversized windowbox.

Choosing just one May winner this year was no easy task because many lovely clematis gracefully embellished my garden throughout the month.  After much consideration, the clematis I chose to take the prize is Clematis CEZANNE, with it’s big cluster of blue(ish) satiny flowers, draped over the edge of my windowbox.  This clematis, bred by clematis hybridizer Raymond Evison as a Patio Clematis, has a smaller root system than most clematis, making it perfect for a pot or, in my case, a large windowbox.  Patio Clematis bloom in several flushes throughout the summer, especially when deadheaded or cut back after each flush dies down.  Pruning is easy–just cut them back hard in late winter (even late fall in milder climates like Seattle).

May’s Runners Up

The runners up in May are no slouches.  Check them out!
