Tuesday's Truths: The Fortieth Week: H.F. YOUNG is Queen of the Vines!

The photograph atop this blog entry features details of two of the many H.F. Young Clematis flowers that are currently thriving in my rooftop garden. Welcome to week forty in my Tuesday's Truths series with a post dedicated to this particular flora variety, which is known to be Queen of the Vines.

I have had my H.F. Young Clematis since 2004 or 2005, and in spite of harsh weather (in all seasons), as well as garden upheavals, the vine continues to bless my surroundings by producing dozens upon dozens of  gorgeous flowers, which trail up a pole in the northwest corner of my urban garden. Some images featuring this can be found directly below.

A web-page for the National Garden Association considers the clematis to be Queen of the Vines and explains that the H.F. Young variety "produces cascades of 6- to 8-inch-wide, Wedgewood-blue flowers set off by creamy white stamens. Although its season is May into June, and September, 'H.F. Young' is seldom out of bloom..." 

As you can see, their description is spot on when it comes to my H.F. Vine, which was introduced pictorially in both the digital,

and softcover version,

of Words In Our Beak Volume One. And in volume two (still in the works), information will be cited re the durability of the vine. Stay tuned.
