Clematis Beauty VII

The last few months of clematis beauty have brought me great pleasure. The final clematis vines to bloom at Coppertop this season grow against the west side of the garden shed. The cascades of flowers are just starting to open, and the diminutive blooms are a dusty pinkish purple, shown most accurately in the first photo. This is Clematis ‘Purpurea Plena Elegans.’ Perhaps this color is also called mauve? When the blooms open fully in a couple of weeks, they’ll appear frilled and plump, but I was eager to take photos and couldn’t wait. I cut these back very late in April and was thrilled I didn’t cause lasting harm!
