'Sweet Summer Love' Clematis is starting to bloom in my garden now.
Climbing up one of the deck supports, its small purple blooms are visible from below as well as from above!
The blooms are a bit more reddish and not so violet as that first photo shows.
That one's not quite right either! It must be the light when seen from below...
...although this one is more accurate. Love this shot!
The stems are quite colorful, which makes the lack of flowers down low less of a problem:
But up on the deck, that's where the show really is:
This is supposed to be a fragrant hybrid, but I don't notice any scent. Fine with me though, as this is such a pretty bloomer!
Is anybody else growing this?
(I used a lens that I don't normally put on the camera. It's a bit soft for my liking...)
