WHITE CLEMATIS ON THE FENCE (フェンスの白いクレマチス)


Clematis florida (Asian virginsbower) is native in China
and was imported to Japan in 17th century.
Japanese name is 'Tessen' that means iron wire.
It bears white petal flowers with purple stamens. 
It has started to flower last week, and a number of flowers are in bloom now
on the iron mesh just front of the dark blown wooden fence. 
The flowers are simple but beautiful
in contrast with dark colours of leaves and fence. 

Chaste tree and salvia guaranitica are growing  in the border.
セイヨウニンジンボクとサルビアガラニチカがボーダーで成長しています.


With potted petunia 鉢植えのペチュニアと

テッセンは中国原産で17世紀に日本に入りました.
テッセンは鉄線の意味
白い花びらと紫のしべの花で
先週咲き始め、
今はたくさんこげ茶色のフェンスの手前の金網に咲いています.
花は清楚ですが
葉やフェンスの暗い色との対比でとても綺麗です.
