Another one of my favorite garden flowers is my clematis. Several years ago, I decided I wanted to grow one near a chain link fence so that it could some day nearly cover it in blossoms. I think that dream is quite a few more years down the road; but in the meantime, it is growing a little larger each year. After my first plant was established, I thought it might be nice to plant another one beside the first, and train it to go down the fence in the opposite direction. My second poor little clematis has had a rough go of it though. It has been dug up several times by mistake, which actually resulted in buying a replacement. And it has also suffered from being partially sprayed with weed killer; however, despite all of the harsh treatment, it is doing its best to survive.
