We have one of those on our mailbox! :)  Very pretty flowers.  I 
hadn't thought of clematis for the shady side of the house - the one 
that has the dark purple flowers would be nice over there.

The spectra roses are nice too - I've seen them (I think) at a local 
rose garden/amphitheatre - they had climbed really really high up a 
gazebo-like structure.

I need to look around and see what's available in the local 
nurseries... went to the farmer's market today but it was so cold and 
drizzling - no fun looking at outdoor plants!
