Well, I was watering the plants the other day (refuge from my schedule) and noticed that the clematis that I thought died, was BLOOMING! I had planted this when we first moved into the house, October 2001. It grew for about 1 year, never bloomed, and then disappeared. I was so excited to see the bloom. I did not even realize what it was, when I first saw it.
What a nice surprise!
If anyone knows a good way to get rid of bugs that are terrorizing the Angels Trumpet let me know. The leaves that are in the picture are being eaten alive. I have tried a few different systemics & Malathion to no avail.
