The clematis is a climbing plant. The clematis, whose name means “climbing plant” in Greek, a member of the buttercup family and its origins are in China. I have it climbing up a post towards a small trellis.

It’s doing much better this summer than last. I bought it from a nursery and this is its third year. I like the purple flowers, especially as the sun calls them out.
