Sweet Autumn Clematis

One little bit...that's all it was.
I pulled one little vine from the ground (of my friend Tisha's flower bed) and then planted it in my back yard....about four years ago.  Look at it now!  Sweet Autumn Clematis everywhere!  It can be rather invasive...but it's pretty easy to keep it where we want it to grow.  It looks amazing and smells wonderful!

There's not a whole lot going on in my yard this year....we just couldn't keep up with the watering and weeding.  But this clematis didn't care.  It just grew like crazy!

I think I will plant it everywhere!!  What a show that would be!

I found a lot of info about this plant here....in case you're interested in reading more.

Hi dear Marie,
this Clematis I never saw before, how beautifull it is with all the small white flowers, I will look more on the adress given-thankyou.
In my garten we also could not water everything when needed this summer, so lots of things looks rather sad ,now....
Have a lovely day.

Oh, so beautiful!!! I am going to remember this plant. When you see my post for tomorrow, you will know why I just might be needing to replace some plants in my garden.

Have a great day today, Marie!
Thanks again for thinking of our family in your prayers! You're a sweetie :)

I have never seem this plant before, it is beautiful, and it has such initiative! I do have a few evasive plants but none as pretty as this one.
