Updated Monday, June 19, 2017. 176 taxa in bloom in the garden, three more than last week! The Integrifolia Group is in full cry, and the Viticella Group have open blossoms but not the show it will be next week and for weeks to come. The weather is warming up, and it has stopped raining. The picture below is from bed 17, where various Clematis integrifolia hybrids are now finding each other.

Saphyr™ 'Indigo' and Saphyra™ 'Double Rose'—the integirfolia group is taking over the spotlight!
