So sorry to hear you're still being rained on, Klahanie. But this is a stunner of a clematis. I really like the pale green stripes on it and full of flower.

So sorry your spring weather has been so disappointing Klahanie, while we have had exceptional sunshine. I hope your summer will be much better. Gorgeous Clematis. x

Anget, the flowers are about 6" so it is very noticeable.
Thanks for your sympathetic comment :-)
Sheila, sorry for my constant whining this year but gardening is my major activity and everything is way behind and damaged by our spring coldness and rain.

I do look at your weather in UK from time to time and am envious. Thanks for liking this clem.

Heavy rain here today … much needed for the garden. What a good thing all the Jubilee street parties were held yesterday!

Thank you Shirley_tulip. Hopefully just temporarily colder.

Did you have a Jubilee street party in your neighbourhood Sheila? ...and did you participate?

There was a small family gathering not far from us, Klahanie, which I passed when I went for a walk to my local pond, but not one where I knew anyone. I think they were few and far between here …
