Nothing pleases the eye quite as much as the sight of 'Henryi' in full early-summer bloom, cascading over a wall or climbing a fence. The single daisy-shaped blooms are fully 6 to 7 inches across, with a dark center and a creamy "crease" or two up the center of each petal. The effect is crisp and clean, particularly against the bright green foliage. And when 'Henryi' shows new growth in spring, the leaves have a deep bronze hue! 'Henryi' blooms all summer, with the heaviest flush early in the season, and has been a proven garden performer for many years. It is one of our very favorites, and we collect compliments each year from gardeners new to its rewarding pleasures!

Clematis is easy to grow in a rich, porous, alkaline soil with plenty of room for the roots to spread. Best performance is when the tops are in full sunlight and the roots are shaded, so apply a generous mulch or a shallow-rooted ground cover near the base of the vine. Very reliable performers once established, they take a season or two to get going. 'Henryi' is a Group II Clematis for pruning purposes, which means that in early spring you should cut back the vine 6 or 8 inches to the nearest pair of strong leaf axil buds. Zones 3-9.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits. Deer repellent plants include: lavender, onion, catnip, sage, chives, garlic, spearmint, and thyme. Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants.
