Miss Bateman Clematis

Miss Bateman Clematis

A little story about Miss Bateman Clematis in my garden. A few years ago, when I started gardening, I got a Miss Bateman Clematis for 10 cents from Lowes on clearance. It was almost brown with one or two leaves left. I did not want to try 14.99$ clematis without much experience. Also got $1 Asao Clematis. I treated my $1 Clematis as King and planted the Miss Bateman somewhere in the backyard and I didn’t care much about it. After all it is just a plain white flower was my thought. Asao clematis climbed on the arbor that had been installed by the previous house owner for her English Ivy,. I completeley removed the thick Ivy as I was afraid that I would see snakes hanging through arbor above my head as I get out of the garage. Anyway long story short no stakes for the 10cents Miss Bateman. But Miss Bateman survived without stakes ans trellis and looks like this now….

I have decided that I am going to stake my Bateman soon. It is stunning when it’s in bloom. Pure shite 3 inch large flower with light purple center.Both Asao and Miss Bateman are type B Clematis, min eusually starts blooming mid May. My observation is that it takes a few years for these plants to establish. proper care, pruning and a support on trellis or arbor is required, also the keep the root cool with mulch,then water and fertilize very often. It is one of my favorite plant that I can’t wait to see the bloom, just like I wait for the peonies and roses and once a year the super bloom in spring.

Clematis for every month of the year

Law of Detachment


Thrift plant is super easy to grow, no need to fertilize or water much. It thrives in the dry , sandy soil. Blooms in spring throughtout the summer mostly. My daughter loves to pick the small pink flowers. Removing the spent flowers will promote more blooms.

With the thrift flowers,here is the daily inspiration from Chopra Center. I love reading them daily, and some of the best, I copy to blog so that i can keep reading them since the original site doesnot have the archives for public.
