Roses & Clematis

I have a nice healthy shrub rose bush Linda Campbell, I have read several articles about inter planting a Clematis vine at the base of a large rose bush so I decided to give it a try. Linda Campbell has a dark red bloom, I wanted to find a white clematis but in my Saturday AM trip to buy plants I could not find a white clematis at any of our local shops so I got a very pale lavender clematis to use. It was so windy this weekend I didn't plant it but did today after I got home from work, the ground was nice and moist from the inch of rain we received yesterday. This was Linda in her glory last summer.
