Beautiful. My neighbour had one in front garden which grew over my side which I didn't mind at all, but they dug it up for some reason. I've put a climbing rose over my side now as it looked rather bare.
When we moved here seven years ago the Montana was pulling down a wooden arch. I cut it a foot off the ground and replanted it up against a fence. It resprouted and needs a good chop back again! @wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom
29 Apr 2019 • We’ve only been away for 4 days but there’s obviously been lots of rain and now sunshine and I can hear the garden growing! None of these were out when we left, now they are all ready to just spring open. I can’t wait, the perfume is wonderful 🌸🌸🌸
Thanks Suzy. It must have taken a few years. I remember my first attempt with a small one failed as it kept getting eaten by slugs. 2nd time round I bought a more mature plant, so it was a little woody and less tasty and it romped away. Now the job is to keep it under control... @suzyw
@riakat Yes I think you can certainly say this one is vigorous Elisa 😂This is 1st floor level - it is growing out of the ground under a wooden balcony. I cut it back hard after it flowers & do have to stop it growing into the gutters - but it's worth it 🌸
Every year I think I’ve over done it then, a month later, I wish I’d taken off more… #pruning #clematis-montana ✂️✂️✂️ #beforeandafter
