{Our 2013 Clematis lanuginosa 'Candida'}

Our 2013 Clematis lanuginosa 'Candida', the largest Clematis variety, (availability you find below post) did not yield many blooms for 2013. Below you can find more glorious blooms from earlier years. But let's have a look at this exotic beauty:
Gorgeous and HUGE flowers as usual. They are incredible.
That was it; 3 blooms on May 11 of 2013!
Hard to capture the all white blooms on camera...
The center bloom...
The bottom one where some critter has been eating away at its petal...
We used to have this Clematis lanuginosa 'Candida' up against a trellis under the balcony.
This is 7 years ago and now you can actually see their HUGE size!
2006 showed some very HAPPY blooms.
Gardener Pieter beaming with pride in 1996 when we had one as a perfect vine up against our front porch on the corner of the house. NEVER happened again and we actually lost this one... A very tiny new plant came up that Pieter babied inside the green house, in a pot before planting it next to the tree where it resides now.
Me standing proudly next to them in 1996...
For more photos of this huge beauty see the link below this post.
But we still have these photos as living memory!
Does any of you have this type of Clematis?

  2. Dearest Mariette,
    Oh, your Clematis is really elegant♡♡♡ There must be a good blooming year and not. I loved to see your husband "beaming with pride" in in 1996.

    PS> so sorry my confusion leaving comment your last year's post last night. When I went to your site from the comment for me, I was led to that post and didn't realized the date(^^;) Whew, my carelessness never end, my dear friend.

    Sending you lots of love and hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

    1. Dearest Miyako,
      Sure there are good and bad years for blooming more or less... Depending on the weather conditions and how the winter has been etc.
      Like humans, a plant is not all the time in 'optima forma' as we call it.
      I love that photo very much where husband Pieter indeed beams with pride! And rightly so.
      Thanks for your sweet comment that you left on the previous Clematis post. Yes, they are our 'green children'...
      Hugs from Georgia to the rising sun,

      Guess with the huge trees around your property there will be too much shade. Even ours has kind of perished and showed only 3 blooms and by far not as full as last year. You find last year's in link below post. Will have to move it to a better spot.

    The white clematis makes such a pretty show in your garden and the photos of you and Pieter and the blooms are lovely.
    At our last house we had a pretty pale pink clematis that was gorgeous over a trellis.

    Happy week

  10. Wat een prachtige bloemenweelde Mariëtte en wat een grote bloemen.
    Wij hebben dit voorjaar 2 Clematissen geplant. Eén witte en een paarse, een vroege en een laatbloeier. Maar voordat deze zoveel bloemen geven als die van jou gaan er nog wel een paar jaar over heen.

    De Pioenrozen koop ik bij een stalletje aan de weg. Veel bloggers denken dat ze hier langs de weg groeien, maar dat is helaas niet zo. Maar hier heb je veel bloemkraampjes langs de weg met Tulpen en nu met Pioenen.

    Fijne dag en een lieve groet, Mea

      Ja, jullie hebben prachtige pioenrozen en wij hebben af en toe een goed jaar voor deze enorme Clematis! Maar in Nederland zullen ze het best goed doen, mits ze voldoende zon krijgen. Die van ons moeten we verzetten, staat te donker onder de bomen...

  16. Wat een prachtige clematis Mariette! Zie ik het nu goed dat deze bij jullie in de schaduw groeit?

    Ik ben vandaag de berichtjes doorgelopen, die je had gestuurd met blogtips. Er zit waardevolle informatie bij. Ik heb meteen mijn feeds bijgesteld. Als het goed ik zie ik nu je reactie als je reageert op mijn comment.

    Fijne week verder!

    1. Beste Madelief,
      Ja dit is echt een klasse Clematis; mits die het goed naar de zin heeft! Fijn dat je wat kon doen met de berichtjes; kwam er nu pas achter ook dat je dit nooit ontvangen had...
      Já, je ziet het goed dat deze in de schaduw staat. Die moet daar in de herfst ook weg want hij begint weg te kwijnen. Zie in de link onder de post hoe hij nog afgelopen jaar leek. Onder de bomen en naast een grote struik (die enorm groeit) dat gaat dus niet. Vandaar minder bloemen en kleiner ook. Alleen de onderste bloem was mooi dubbel. Je hebt àltijd weer werk in een tuin. Maar die foto's van 1996 zijn droomplaatjes. Zo krijgen we het volgens mij ook nooit meer.
      Ook een prettige voortzetting van de week.
      Liefs,
      Mariette

  17. Dearest Mariette,
    Your white clematis is beautiful. I just love seeing the photos of you and Pieter with them in more abundant years.
    I wish I could grow them. They are one of my few unsuccesses with plants. But them up until a few years ago I couldn't grow roses either.
    We are having a good year for mountain laurel....last year was so sparse the festival was cancelled.
    Enjoy any good weather that comes your way....*s*

      Thanks for liking it too. Ah, mountain laurel we have tried here too but of course lost it. Climatic influences are so tricky with all plants, shrubs and trees. We have to enjoy whatever grows and blooms in abundance once in a while! We got some sunshine today, a heave shower last night.

      These lovely and HUGE Clematis originated in China. Guess in Japan they will have them also. Oh, their show of blooms in 1996 was like a dream! We treasure those photos. Actually they were slides that I came across when scanning. It made me very happy.
      Thanks for your sweet compliment. Flowers make me happy.

      Glad you loved the guest bathroom and this Clematis. It is exotic looking but it must thrive even better in more temperate zones to the north. We're at the latitude of Tunesia if you compare.
      Our week is starting to look lovely and sunny again. But quite hot at 47°C at 11:00 o'clock in the morning...
