Queen for A Day.......or at least a week or two

Oh the Clematis,
Queen of the Garden and
Aristocrat of the Climbers




These four are what is blooming at Beech Street, another one of my most favorite flowers. Heck they are all my favorites...............The awesome thing about a Clematis is you can grow in the ground or in a pot as long as it is a variety that will grow in a pot. You can also train them on a trellis or I have a couple that I have planted at the base of shrubs. They will climb to the top of the canopy and cover the top with flowers. A good shrub to use is a Lilac, with it flowering so early in the Spring. Than the Clematis will cover the top later in the season.

USDA hardiness zone 4 to zone 11
