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.





ADDENDUM FALL 2018: 

The digital and softcover versions of Volume One within the Words In Our Beak book series that are mentioned in this entry may only remain available for a limited time, but hardcover versions of Volume One, Two and Three can now be found wherever books are sold.



Please click here to go to my blog post that provides details as to where you can get these books.

Additionally,  I have rendered some images from these books into other formats and they are available via Fine Art America (FAA). Some of my other photographs (Black & White Collection, Kaleidoscopic Images and the famous Mandarin duck who visited NYC) can also be found on my FAA pages.
