Clematis macropetala Propertius

IMG_0034

 

I don’t remember this particular plant looking as lovely last year, but here it is, in a shadier spot with hints of sunlight picking out the detail. I’ve posted about other macropetalas (Jan Lindmark most recently), so I don’t need to repeat any details about staminoids and tepals, fascinating though they are. Nor do I need to mention John Howell’s book ‘The Rose and the Clematis’ since it must already be required reading for lovers of both genus. Just enjoy the charm of this beautiful clematis and wonder which particular rose would be a suitable companion!
