Sweet Autumn Clematis

Sweet Autumn Clematis

picture from check him out

Anyway, this is what I hoped to have growing on my trellis, Sweet Autumn Clematis... but due to the most unfortunate of accidents, I hope I will see it next year.
I first saw it growing on my daughter's fence in her new house..which is a very old four square house in the city. It was stunning. And at the time, a hard clematis to find at the nursery. But find one I did in Galena. I planted it two years ago. First year nice it climbing on the tellis, this year..climbing and sending out flower buds. So when I cut it by mistake while getting rid of grape vine...I cried.
Really, I cried.
I have watched it die slowly over the last day or two. Hoping over hope that maybe somwhere it was connected to the  It's gone. I appreciate all your words of comfort and've all been there one way or anothe,r I know.
Now to man up and get back out there in the garden and find some joy. Bar Open.


  1. That is truly a beautiful plant. So sorry you accidently cut yours. Is any of it left to sprout out next year.

    Hugs and more hugs to you...

  2. a sorry stub....I hope it grows back..I'm checking on that hoo

  3. Oh gosh - I saw one of these in Frankfort one year while walking the blocks to Frankfort Fest. Absolutely stunning! It's getting a lot of prayers.

  4. I do hope that your one survives and grows with extra vigour after it's shock prune.


leave me a line of joy
