|Dawn clematis. Isn't it lovely?|
Since the Highland Gardens series has a garden theme running through it, and gardening is one of my passions, I thought I would include garden themed posts on the blog. Today, I'm sharing a couple of photos of the Dawn clematis blooming in a pot in my yard. This plant has been in a pot for about ten years and moved with me from the NJ Sandy Hook bay area—salty winds—to an apartment balcony in Southern Maryland, to a small townhome garden nearby.
J I also selected it because the Dawn clematis is one of the early season, large-flowered cultivars. Dawn blooms as a pearly-pink open flower in May and is perfect for container culture. Sometimes my plant reflowers in August with slightly smaller blooms. Beautiful nonetheless.
Do you have a favorite clematis?
