Japanese Maple and Clematis

Pin It

Fall colors are ablaze these days on Raven Ridge; from pure yellows to orange, copper and fiery red.
This vignette is comprised of Japanese maple and a white-blooming clematis - a little shy of flowers but quite a prolific grower. I cut it back several times during the summer to keep it from completely engulfing the dwarf maple tree.

Hi there Sylvia! So nice to hear from you.

Christine said...

Me too, Paz. These are tucked into a corner of my yard that is not readily seen, so when I come across them, it's always a new delight. Have a good week!

Gorgeous colors!

Thank you Simona. Things change so quickly in the fall; now all the leaves have dropped from the little maple, leaving the vigorous clematis draped around and through bare branches.

I love this combination Christine!
That blend of green "life" clinging to such a brilliant red .. my Japanese maples go that colour in Spring and Autumn .. they are gorgeous "foils" for other plants aren't they ?
