Niobe Clematis

This magnificent clematis is about five years old. The number of blooms is almost unreal. The color varies a bit with the light. It appears very dark colored today with no sun overhead.

When I first planted the Niobe clematis, for the first two years it grew so slowly I almost dug it out, it was so scrawny. About the third or fourth year it flourished, and it has been beautiful ever since. So remember it takes time to establish a good root system.
