Clematis? I barely know her!



Hey remember that plant we had last summer which came out of nowhere and looked like a lily??? You know which one! Its actually a clematis according to our favorite thrifter from down under: http://megsmyth1.blogspot.com.au/2015/02/almost-autumn.html

I dropped by gardeners.com for instruction because wikipedia is too wordy with too few pictures: http://www.gardeners.com/how-to/grow-clematis/8203.html It says the vine grows by latching with its leaves, instead of twining. This explains why ours didn't grow much - the spaces on the trellis were too far apart.

Don't worry little plant, spring is coming and I will rig that trellis for you!
