Clematic chiisanensis 'Korean Beauty'

I started this little clematis from seed three years ago. The following photos follow it throughout the season.

I do love a plant that has beautiful seed heads and buds at the same time.
Here it blooms with Hydrangea panniculata 'Tardiva.'

A few weeks later the seed heads start to bronze up...

And a few months later, the seed heads have bleached out completely. They still hang on looking lovely in December.
