Saturday Blooms

This is Queen Elizabeth. She does wonderfully here in our hot dry summer climate. I love the pretty pink color. This is a grandiflora rose bush.


This is Clematis Niobe. It opens a deep red and gently fades to a rosey color. It is very pretty and a vigorous grower. This is when it is first opening.

Later after its been blooming for a couple days.

That's a gorgeous rose Cindee! I have Niobe, she is my favorite Clematis and is pretty reliable with blooms throughout the rest of the season.

Hi Perennialgardener,
Thanks!
I just love the color of Niobe so much. It is so pretty. I have several clematis but they are not blooming yet.

Both beautiful classics!

Clematis is one of my favorites. They're the best of the flowing vines that tolerate the winter here. I wonder how the Niobe would do with the cold here. Not all the varieties are hardy enough to survive.

Hi WiseAcre,
I am not sure how it would survive there but it does well here. Usually its the heat that kills my stuff!

Hi Aunt Debbi,
