Thanks, Janey ~
The pink tree belongs to a neighbour past a path at the end of my garden.
Not a lot of scent on armandii, as I recall, but I'll check tomorrow...

Nice place for a cosy nest TT .. We have something raiding nests in our garden .. two chubby babys laying on the gravel beneath a fir tree yesterday ... sad .. :o(

Oh, that's a shame, Amy. :o(
Disadvantage of the nesting is that I have to wait ages to prune the clematis.
In my pergola, some collared doves started building a nest, but were gazumped by the blackbirds. Lol.

That's a lovely clematis TT. Full of buds :o)

It is beautiful but the pruning can wait for the blackbirds to leave, don't you think. By the fact that you are leaving the pruning, I know you agree.

Thank you Hywel and Toto.
I'm pleased you like this clematis. :o)

Hi Deida ~
I had a sneaky peek at the nest from a distance today and could see mother blackbird sitting contentedly on her eggs. :o)

Hi TT
Got a dove sitting for over a week,so close to the back door almost reachable .and the Magpies had 1 egg already..but she is still sitting on the nest..bless her .for how long I don't know.I get so upset.but this is nature

2 Apr, 2009

 

The magpies came very close to your back door there, Deida !
Let's hope the dove has at least one more egg to hatch a youngster. :o)

What a healthy looking plant!! Can't blame the blackbirds for nesting there.

Hello Gg ~
Today the collared doves were investigating whether they could also make a nest a bit further along in the same clematis....
I'm sure there's room in there for another bird family. Lol.

Hi, TT, Your Clematis is very beautiful, It seems to have small blossoms, and how long are the leaves?

Hi Nelke ~
There's another photo I put on GoY on 3lst March. 09, showing a bit more of the Armandii. In this picture there are more buds than flowers fully out. The clematis is still in flower, so I've just been out in the garden with my ruler to measure for you. Lol.

The white open flowers measure about two and a half inches across.

The leaves vary from 4 inches in length to 6 inches in length.

You can also see the clematis on the pergola in my most recent photo uploaded yesterday of my back garden and dog run.

This is a fast growing evergreen clematis. I hope this helps :o)

Thanks, TT. You did even measure it for me! Sometimes I´m thinking to put a Clematis outside the northern balustrade. I´ve had one before, but it got that special clematis funghi. This one I´ld like. The leaves are so beautiful and it´s flowers somehow look like belonging to a noble sister of the native ones. Evergreen is good, too.

23 Apr, 2009

 

This Clematis has quite tough, thick leaves, so doesn't look like it would succumb to any fungus. I measured the flowers just in time. The breeze has been blowing the petals to the ground today....
Good luck with trying armandii. :o)

23 Apr, 2009

 

It's a real beauty TT, will have to see if I can find a place in the garden for one of these.

6 May, 2009

 

Nice that these are evergreen, Flcrazy.
The leaves look good all year...

Miss having this, as had in a previous garden. I really like this pic for its dark background and creamy white foreground (very chocolatey) :-).

17 May, 2009

 

I'm trying to start cuttings growing from this clematis ...
chips off the old white chocolate block. Lol.
.. don't know yet if the cuttings will thrive...
I have grown babies from this in the past, so I'm hopeful. :o)

18 May, 2009

 

LOL! Good Luck with your babes, Tt! :-)

19 May, 2009

 

Thanks, David. :o)
