This Clametis x cartmanni ‘Joe’ is blooming for the first time in the garden. It’s been in full bloom for about two weeks and more flowers are still opening up. Originally I meant to have this climb a metal arch, but, that didn’t happen! It seems happy enough being supported by a bamboo pole for now. Growing next to it is Cotinus coggygria ‘Royal Purple’.
Various blooms and pre-blooms, and some more beautiful Cotinus foliage.
I’m not sure which I like better, the blooming California Poppy or the spent one.
And the foliage!
