Clematis Close-Up of Bloom

Clematis Viticella (Venosa Violacea)

Clematis Close-Up – also, Italian clematis

I photographed the Clematis close up to display the amazing construction of this beautiful plant. It is a climbing vine that (if supported) can climb over 20 feet in one year. It also blooms most of the time from spring to frost. Velvet-like purple and pink blooms with beautiful purple and white stamens in the center. Beautiful from a distance, amazing close up!
