clematis by gatejakes pics and more 079This white clematis, which lives by the back garden gate, is just beginning to bloom and has enough buds to promise a long blooming season to come.

For success with clematis, the old saying is to ‘keep their heads warm and their feet cool’.  This one gets morning and mid-day sun while the roots are protected from overheating by an underplanting of sedum.
