Updated Saturday June 15th. As of yesterday, we had 247 clematis in bloom, with many new summer bloomers starting their first cycle of bloom. The Summer Solstice is but a week away, and the surest sign of summer here is ‘Madame Julia Correvon’ climbing the western porch of the farmhouse in the Heirloom Garden. She is pictured below.

We are loving this combination from the Modern Garden Evison rows, Franziska Maria™ ‘Evipo008’ arching her big blossoms over Giselle™ ‘Evipo051’. This is equally lovely from either side of the row.
