Fertilizer Friday & Flaunt Your Flowers

I could not help myself.
This is too pretty not to do a whole post just on these blooms!

Clematis - To prune or not to prune?
Do you prune?
I have never pruned mine and every year
I have beautiful flowers.

I just LOVE this plant!
I was told that this was Jackmanii.
Do you know?

I am joining Tootsie by celebrating Fertilizer Friday & Flaunt Your Flowers!

And then there are these little inch worms!!!
Are they driving you crazy? 
They are eating every leaf in sight!
What do I do? What do I do?

*********************
Today I am thankful for..........life!

Calling by to visit another participant from Flaunt your Flowers. I think your clematis looks healthy, we only ever used to prune ours if it became untidy in the space we had allowed for it.

No matter the name of the Clematis vine, it's gorgeous...squash those worms!

Your clematis is beautiful. I love purple flowers. I hope to get a clematis vine to grow on my little arbor.

Oh Val I love seeing your blooms. Won't see any here for quite some time unless I go to a plant store. Hugs

I agree, your clematis deserves the spotlight in this post! I don't know which one it is, but it's beautiful.

The rabbits pruned my clematis severely, as in down to the ground. I sure hope they come back. At least I can enjoy yours.

Beautiful!

It is a lovely Clematis. That's a plant that won't grow here in the tropics, so I always enjoy photos of it from other gardeners.

Sorry, I can't help with any advice with inch worms ... other than just squash them when you see them. Sometimes it's either them or the plants!

It looks like Jackmanii clematis, but there are so many varieties...I can't be sure. Enjoyed seeing your flowers.

Val, the plant is a Clematis, variety is Jackmanii. Kind of like there are different varieties of roses, there are different varieties of clematis. It's just beautiful!
