Flower Power: How a Single Clematis Makes the World Brighter

Rushing to get to a meeting the other day, I paused by the side of my garage. There I saw the most beautiful clematis, quietly climbing the trellis I put there last year, and spilling over onto the sidewalk. It took my breath away. 

I hadn't taken the time to notice it blooming until that moment, and suddenly there it was, a gentle explosion of color and beauty to brighten my day. 

It transformed the side of the garage into a canvas. Even more, it reminded me that something small left to grow on its own can bloom into a powerful force that makes its tiny corner of the world that much brighter!

Every flower gardener should know the pleasure of growing clematis. If you already have one in your garden, you're probably scheming about how to squeeze in another! Easy to grow, with beautiful blooms that will make your neighbors envious.
