Niobe

This is clematis 'Niobe'.  She hangs out on a trellis in front of the studio.    I love this trellis - a gift from my mom. [Thanks, Mom!]

Clematis like to have shaded feet.   You can plant big plants at their feet or put a rock or piece of art.   I put a garden sign up to shade her feet. 

She totally loves me.

  2. Thank you for sharing! I didn't know Clematis liked to have shaded 'feet' I have a few in my yard and some do really well while others struggle a bit. I will shade the ones that aren't doing well to see if they perk up!
