Clematis viorna x crispa 'Odoriba' and Clematis and Clematis x 'Duchess of Albany' (C. texensis x C. 'Star of India'
I walked down to the sunny cultivar bed in the Fern Valley Meadow this afternoon and found that the clematis had grown tenfold over the past year. In the bottom picture, C. x 'Duchess of Albany' is resting amongst flower spikes of baptisia. They seem to be getting along.
