Clamatis viticella 'Madame Julia Correvon' is performing well in her first full season in our garden.
We purchased two at the end of the season last year on sale.
Into the ground from their 3 gallon buckets, our Madames Julia must have settled right in last year, since they are blooming wonderfully this year after an early spring pruning of the entire plant.
They are planted at the long fence in the back yard, with Pink Lemonade honeysuckle and our 4 new Aloah roses. The fence has a south exposure, and is buffeted by the prevailing winds, so I was not sure how clematis would do. She must be one tough lady! I love the color; like the wine-red sea, and just as tempest-tossed.
