I'm posting this pic with Donna's instructions! I've been having all sorts of problems with photobucket and have been using email as a sizing method so that I can post pics. Donna has suggested another way.
This is a picture I took this morning. There's no way it shows the incredible growth on this Sweet Autumn Clematis. Underneath that mound of greenery is a 6' obelisk. There are three clematis on it, the Bluebird, Dr. Ruppel and the Sweet Autumn Clematis. I did a double take when I saw the growth on it this year. It has completely taken over, and is covered with hundreds of buds. These open to a pretty little 4-petal white star. There are a few already opened. In another week or so it will turn from a green mound to a white mound. It's early too!
Anyway, here goes.
Well, it seems to work, but I think takes longer than the email method! Perhaps it's just me and the new learning curve!!! lol!

It looks fine to me, Brenda. And when I click on your picture, I get the much larger one with the better detail.

Hi...Years ago when I was still on my farm, I found a wild tiny white Clematis growing wild everywhere up through the trees, in the woods understory. I took a branch to the local Horticultural show and it won 1st prize. It competed with some of the most beautiful large flowers. Apparently it was a species Clematis rarely seen. I was shocked and amused as I had entered it as a bit of a joke,
A friend gave me what I think was the Sweet Autumn Clematis. It grew rampantly all across a fence. It was lovely and aromatic.
Such memories.

It grows too fast, you need to trim, or else it will overwrite the other plants to curb the growth of other plants.

hotsummerone, what zone are you in?
