My goodness, I just fell hard for a plant. Her name is Clematis ‘Avant Garde’. She has me thinking about designing an ultra girly pink garden — and I don’t really even have a thing for pink.
Those blooms would just be so fantastic up the side of our barn, or perhaps over the soon-to-be pergola…. I am curious, have you grown this lovely lady? I read that she is not only gorgeous but also on the tall side. I am not sure what that means in clematis-land — is it that she grows even more in a single season? Cause all my clematis are pretty much huge and to say that one is taller than another seems a bit hard to measure. What do you know?
Here is where I am shopping for this (but I need to figure out where to plant it!) :
