Purple Passion

The Clematis vine just began to bloom about 3 days ago, and I'm so impressed with how vivid the purple color looks and how well it coordinates with the pansies. I love PURPLE, it is the color found most often in my wardrobe, and in many ways it has become my "signature" color. Purple is so elegant and exotic, so rich and sexy. It is a strong color in a way that soft pinks can never be, yet is subtle unlike in-your-face reds and bright fuchsia. Some gardeners are fascinated with flowers the color blue, but for me, purple will always do.

Wow! You're already blooming - what fun. I love the pairing with that pansy - just perfect. I just planted a Jackmanii clematis - it's only about 6 inches high - but maybe next year I'll be celebrating with you!

Everything is running ahead of schedule this year, it's quite odd but I'm happy to get early flowers! I wish I knew the name of this clematis, it looks like "Jackmanii" but not sure. I thought it had died but it really came to life over the last 4wks.
