Blooms But Once A Year And It’s Worth It
It’s that time of year again: A time of colors and scents. The unintended Clematis Montana (Clematis Montana var Rubens) proves itself of worthy for any garden again even though it blooms only once a year. I can hardly see it’s leaves this spring. The pool fence is covered with the beautiful pink flowers and it has attempted to climb up the patio roof. We are still debating whether the scent is chocolate or vanilla. Either way, I have an urge to eat the flowers every time I smell them. I will be giving it a crew cut this year since it has been taking over other plants space. Guilt ridden just thinking about cutting it but for everybody’s benefit (plant-wise) it needs to be done.
