It’s been a good week in the garden.
The Sweet Autumn Clematis (Clematis paniculata ‘Sweet Autumn’) is in full bloom. Sparkly little white flowers cover the lush green growth. There is a trellis under that vine. I’ve had to tie it up several times this year. The growth tends to go off in all directions.
I dug out some suckers from the Sweet Shrub (Calycanthus floridus). I need to do this in spring and fall to avoid growing a Sweet Shrub forest.
The bush could use a hair cut too.
I have the same sucker problem with the white lilac. I dug out some of those roots too this week.
I got a good start on a new garden to screen the air conditioner unit. More about that in a later post.
While working in the garden I noticed a welcome visitor on the coreopsis.
