Etoile de Violette ~ Violette Star ~ Fall Flowering Clematis ~ The Autumn Season Personal Flower of Lady Violette ~ As I have previously explained I believe in having a personal flower, or several, if you find more than one to which you have a special affinity. Long ago I adopted the violet as mine and the violet colored rose as it was another of my personal favorites. I have also long loved these exquisite purple clematis which are definitely my colors and they bloom in the fall when the other two are through flowering ~ so I have decided, because I really need a special flower for each season, to officially adopt the Etoile de Violette Clematis as my Personal Autumn Season Flower. This beautiful fall flowering clematis is currently blooming on my front porch. It really is named Etoile de Violette which means Violet Star in French or, literally Star of Violet. I have two clematis plants intertwined and growing over a cast iron archway leading up to the porch. It is wild and free flowing and delicate and lovely. The flowers of the two plants are different, so perhaps they are different varieties of clematis, but the nursery labels on the plants called both of them Etoile de Violette. It is a lovely combination even if it is a bit accidental!
