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.
