These clematis were grown in our garden. It took some time before we saw any flowers growing on the vines. With a long stretch of pure sun, they finally started to grow flower buds and the blooms started opening. Eager to catch them in their different stages, I cut a few to create this perfect clematis collection. When it was time to decide on a color, I turned to my community for suggestions. Majority said a rouge like color. After multiple color test, I found a rouge I love.
