My grasp of lighting and pics leaves much to be desired :oops:

Thanks Pat. I'm building another arch for the front yard. It will have Josephine and Multi blue on it.

:lol: Your pic is fine. You should see the pics I took of a bud on Double Delight today. After four pics, I still didn't get a clear one. On the first three the wind kept blowing. The fourth one the wind was still. All four are blurry.

The view from the deck is beautiful too! :D Is that a wegelia on the right?

Pat, yes, thats a red wegelia with an Oak leaf Hydrangea next to it. The Oak leaf is in full bloom since I did that pic. One of my fav garden shrubs.
Here's another pic. Lighting is REALLY sucky in this one. Wegelia is one of the easiest shrubs to start from a cutting. This one is in a fare amount of shade and still blooms like crazy.

Beautiful OED. :D I have a monster wegelia that I started from a cutting from DMIL's. I really need to give that baby a good pruning this year. I think that was almost ten years ago.

Your Oakleaf Hydrangea looks great too. :cool: My Forever Pink looks like it's going to have some blooms. I didn't give it any protection this winter. The previous year I put a ring of wire fencing around it and filled it with straw. I'm seriously considering replacing it.

Just to get back on topic, I'd like to add a couple of Clematis this year too. I have no idea which ones though.

Like hostas, they're a lot out there, and not all can pass the 10ft rule.

Those are beautiful OED! The pictures look just fine. Did you get a new camera??

Ernest Markham looks great over the gate and I love that Josephine!

Thanks eveyone! The Josephine is similar to Multiblue. When the outer leaves fall off, the center stays longer and looks lik big pom pons. Wish I did have new camera. I used my ols one on these. Then had the film done, had to scan, then transfer to posts. :roll: One of these days I'm gonna have a digi. I'm to old and lazy for the other way. :lol: :wink:

Hey OED, how big will Earnest Markham get? I planted mine at the base of an arbor over the deck. It needs to go UP 10 feet and once it reaches the top I'd like it to crawl across the arbor another 6 feet to meet up with Honeysuckle climbing up the other side. It's gone up about 8 feet and is blooming pretty well. This is it's second year in this spot.

Was Earnest Markham a good choice for this, or do I need Sweet Autumn for this job?

The specs on EM are 8 1/2 ft to 17 ft. That garden arbor is 8ft high, and my EM is 2 yrs old. It's in a fair amount of shade, so it could be slower where it's at.
I plan on bringing a few extra SAC to Peggy's party.

Beautiful OED!

So, now can someone explain the 10ft rule to me! Pretty please with a vine over the top? :)

:lol: @ Jane. the ten foot rule is often used when discussing differences in hostas. Because there are so many different ones, many look quite similar to others without close inspection. Some may have slightly wavy leaves, less round, etc. Clematis have many different blues, reds, pink, etc. One blue may have yellow stamen, another blue may be exactly the same except for a brown stamen. Thus, you need to be closer than 10ft to identify them as being different. Hope that makes sense! :wink:

Makes Purrfect sense to me! :) THanks OED. Dang cat trying to type again! :) I've heard it used so many ways, I wasn't sure. I thought perhaps it meant you shouldn't for appearance sake plant closer than 10 ft! HA! :) Thanks for the explanation! :)

I have an Ernest Markham that I've finally moved from its partially shady location to the front garden, where it will get more sun. Here's a pic of it a couple of years ago. Phyllis
