White Wednesday and White Clematis

Welcome to White Wednesday at Faded Charm:
Down my side path into the back garden is a gate that is topped by an arbor. I have Mortimer Sackler roses growing up it and evergreen white clematis on top of it. It is in full bloom now--the white clematis. It smells like jasmine. I cut a little and put it on the bedside table. It scents entire room.

I believe it only grows in mild climates. I could picture Marie Antoinette walking under arbors of this at her little farm at Versailles.

The gate that it covers is the gate I want to have replaced with my monogrammed gate in iron.

Have a Pink day!


  1. Oh I love it! I use to have a Montana clematis over my porch. It just started taking over and had to be trimmed so often we cut it out. I've been thinking of putting one in again somewhere different this time. I can't believe yours is already blooming. Of course you are way south and I am way north!

  2. How wonderful it would be to have a clematis that big. It's very pretty.
