Today’s GPOD is from Deanne Fortnam in Nashua, New Hampshire. She says: “Nothing can beat the exuberance of clematis in full bloom in early July combined with lilies and baby’s breath” Thanks, Deanne, for sending in this great photo! This froth of pink and violet is created with the following plants:

‘Ville de Lyon’ clematis (Clematis ‘Ville de Lyon’, USDA Hrdiness Zones 4-11)
‘Polish Spirit’ clematis (Clematis ‘Polish Spirit’, Zones 4-11)
‘Betty Corning’ clematis (Clematis ‘Betty Corning’, Zones 4-11)
‘Vivaldi’ Asiatic lily (Lilium ‘Vivaldi’, Zones 4-8)
