It's unfortunate they don't bloom too long,but when they do,they are gorgeous.

Hazel,it is not difficult to grow a Clematis,if I can do it so can you.

I've tried 4 or 5 times...then I started feeling guilty about the carnage and stopped trying. Seriously...I've never had one bloom. Or even get higher than about 8 inches. There are some things that just don't mix well: oil and water, drinking and driving, hazel and clematis...

I'm jealous! I tried to grow White Henry's years past without success.

That sure is one beautiful clematis Sylvie and a beautiful picture to showcase.
