Cowart's Common Room

Just had to snatch a minute to post this picture of a brave Clematis, taken thismorning with snow on the ground, -3C last night and -5 the night before.

Angel's Avatar Hi Withy

I do love clematis. We have five around our garden.
They are the type of plant that if they were a person would never moan, just get on with it. Just my type of plant!

It is going to get even colder and lots of snow forecast apparently.

warm wishes

Fennie's Avatar Brave clematis. But maybe that is a distress signal? Telling you it misses the sunny uplands of Tasmania, or wherever it originally came from.

Salle de Bain's Avatar Amazing!

I do think clematis have a bit of unsung hardiness...

Here at 'Ice Station Zebra' ours hung on for a long time into the frosts. They didn't survive as long as yours though!!!

Do you know the name of that variety....must try it!

Exmoorjane's Avatar My passionflower is still flowering, bless its heart.......though of course I'm a wet old westerner....

Frances's Avatar Brave indeed. Every time that I see or, more rarely over here, hear the word clamatis, I think of a friend's cottage in Surrey, and the first time that I saw that flower.

Hoping that you will be showing us another picture in early spring 2009.

Camilla's Avatar I love the Clematis's Withy, we have some summer flowering ones. A few flowers of the Ophelia Rose out still, although I do not expect for much longer with this sudden frost we have had recently.
