Large-flowered Clematis

Large-flowered Clematis

Clematis 'Nelly Moser'


‘Nelly Moser’ seems like a very nice variety of Clematis. It has performed well as a perennial and is a strong bloomer. The color is nice with the red adding a nice touch to the white background.

Clematis is one of those plants that I have never really captured what the ideal growing conditions are. Basically I use my secret gardening sense of what it needs and go with that. It is mostly luck but things seem to work out in the end. Currently we are trying to get a purple one to climb over a metal arch in the garden and the vine is being uncooperative. It seemed to grow about 4 inches and had about 4 flowers on it last year. Oh well better luck next year.
