Clematis will it Live or will it not?????
I posted some picture on Z 's page of what my yard looked like in the Fall and I took some pictures of my Pretty Flowers.. One of the pictures was of the Clematis that I just purchased this year... I paid $20 for it and wasn't all that impressed when I got it but I was insured that It will grow just fine it just takes a while for it to MATURE!! Douglas Hunt gave me some Good advice since I mentioned that the stem had broke as seen in the pictures and it looked like it was going to die on me when all the leaves started to shrivel up and go brown and the stem also lost it's greenery OH NO I thought...We were in this awful drought so I tried watering it every chance I could get ... I didn't want to plant it in the ground because I didn't think it would make it so I just placed it on top of the soil and kept watering it in the original container it came in and all of a sudden One Day It started to re shoot and a NEW Green Stem appeared and then it started to bud and Flower ...I was so EXCITED!!!! WOOOO HOOO!... Well the last PURPLE flower just fell off last night with some high winds we had and now I was wondering since it still being in the pot it came in, It Has ROOTED itself into the ground.. Should I dig it up and re plant or Should I wait til SPRING to do it... Douglas Hunt says Re Plant it Now before the ground Freezes... I wanted to show Some more pictures of my Dilemma to show you My Poor pathetic CLEMATIS!!! and also show you what MY NEIGHBORS CLEMATIS looks like ....HERS is Just STUNNING and she planted it in a bottomless pot at the side of her Back shed...And Look How pretty it is still Blooming:))))..:... What do you Think NOW Douglas Hunt Now that you have seen these picture WILL IT LIVE OR DIE???? Help Please !
