We visited Lynn Crawford’s incredible garden earlier this year, and today we’re happy to share some additional images of her clematis showing off their incredible flowers from this spring.
A pure white, large-flowered hybrid clematis. There are many different types of clematis, but the large-flowered hybrids are the most popular in gardens and sometimes the trickiest to grow. If you need some help with your clematis, we’ve got an article on pruning clematis, one on using them in designs, and some myth-busting on common misconceptions about these plants.
A beautiful pink clematis scrambling up a fence. Fences are natural homes for clematis, providing the vines support and making a practical necessity in the garden into a beautiful feature.
Clematis come in nearly every color of the rainbow and often in interesting patterns. This bold pink is particularly striking.

This is such a great idea—a simple trellis lifts this clematis up from the ground and creates a wonderful high point in the garden, framed perfectly by a carpet of hostas.
Roses and clematis are classic garden partners. I love the delicacy of this clematis flower contrasting with the vicious-looking rose thorns.
