Early Clematis

Clematis 'Nelly Moser'

Yesterday before the rain, I went outside and saw this beautiful huge flower on the 'Nelly Moser'.  It is growing on an oak barrel along with a ficus tree (Ficus benjamina) that serves as its trellis.  This clematis variety is a vigorous grower.  Every year this plant puts on a big display of flowers.  I don't expect a lot of flowers this year since I divided the original plant and transferred some into the ground.  I am waiting to see what happens with the new transplants since they were trampled heavily by the guys who installed the new fence.
