Clematis Budding Up!

After a morning of downpours, the sun broke out briefly this afternoon and drew me outdoors.  My fabulous winter bloomer, Clematis cirrhosa ‘Freckles’, was putting on a glorious show (see photos below).  It is such a reliable winter-time bloomer for me.  Much to my surprise, several of my spring and summer blooming clematis already have fresh green growth (more photos below)!

Fresh new beginnings mingling with the old.  Oh, such promise!

    Beautiful selections. Quick question for you, please: Do you buy any of your Clematis online, if you do, could you share who you purchase from? I don’t have that many nurseries around my home anymore, so I’m thinking about getting what I want/need from the Web. Thank you, Rise Powers
