Tumbling over the stone wall in front of Connecticut Country House is one very happy Sweet Autumn Clematis. When I admire the drifts of tiny, snow-white blooms, it’s hard to imagine that a one-gallon nursery pot, (click here for baby pics and blog post) began its humble beginnings tucked inside a big old hanging basket by the main entrance.

When the temps chilled and the flowers faded, I planted her down by the stone wall, thinking and hoping that it would be the perfect place for her to climb and cover.

Two short summers later, my Sweet Autumn Clematis is gloriously sprawling the stone wall, happily intermingling with the wild roses and providing a soft backdrop for the peonies and iris’ planted at her feet.

Happy gardening!

Love, Nora
