CLEMATIS: Always called the "Queen of Vines," nothing else makes the spectacular show of a clematis in full bloom. In almost all zones, these magnificent plants decorate mailboxes, trellises and porches with cascades of some of the most beautiful blooms in the flower kingdom, and they're not difficult to grow. There's no reason you can't add them to your landscape.
Clematis Serenata has reddish purple flowers that contrast nicely with its yellow stamens. Consider growing it through a light shrub or with a climbing rose!
