A non-climber getting a little less tall than you but with much nicer flowers of a rich pinkish mauve sporting deep ridges on the reverse and with age the tips recurve and twist. Great for sprawling over a lanky shrub or up against a fence or you can just relax and let it scramble.
Very nice 2014 introduction from Holland of this hybrid in the Diversifolia Group. A small grower getting just 5 to 6 feet tall but with a serious flower display fro June to September. This is part of the trend towards breeding plants for small gardens and for containers. This will float your boat on the motion of your garden's ocean. Prune to 6" in Feb-Mar.
A very manageable yet floriferous Clematis with 3" blue-violet flowers set off by a tuffet of white whiskery stamens. This hybrid is in the diversifolia group and gets just 5'-6' tall appreciating a little help from its friends like nearby shrubs or small trellises. Young plants.
Heaps of praise have been bestowed upon this small hybrid and rightly so. Blue-lavender 3" starry flowers are produced over a long period of time from mid summer into September often. This is a scrambler not a twiner and will wend through shrubs to great effect orencouraged on a small trellis.
What is it about these small flowered Clems that tug at our hearts so? Violet urns with recurved tips of very thick substance are like a rich necklace of amethyst laid upon the leaves and you are whisked to a lavish lobby dressed to the nines with champagne flute in hand and the orchestra is faintly tuning. Lovely thing to dress a large shrub.
A hybrid of Clematis marata and C. marmoria from Graham Hutchins of the famed County Park Nursery in New Zealand. This fairly tender little evergreen creeper has early spring female flowers of greenish-white which are strongly scented of citrus. Perfect little container plant to overwinter in the cool greenhouse or outside in mild areas.
Compact little shrubby Clematis from Mongolia and northern China, these are seed-grown from seed given us by one of the greatest plant champions of this or any era, Panayoti Kelaidis of Denver Botanic Gardens. Is there any wonder he is an advisor to Far Reaches Botanical Conservancy? Yellow pendulous bells in August on a plant 2'-3'+ tall. Flowers on current season wood so cut back to strong buds in early spring to just 10"-12".
A very pleasing Dutch hybrid with the elegant Clematis texensis contributing excellent genetics. A small rambling vine to 5'-6' with loads soft shell pink trumpet shaped flowers looking like small tulips strewn on the foliage. Ideal scrambling into shrubs, these are young plants ready to settle in.
A rare wild collection of this species from Hailuogou, Luding, Sichuan at 2750 meters whose identity was in doubt until flowering. A creeper to low climber in the wild, this collection comes from a cold and wet area so should be good here. Small yellow bells are most attttractive and would love a rotting log. Moist bright shade.
A collection from Zhejiang Province from the fall of of 2015 where it grew in an open forest setting around a former temple site on a mountain. This collection represents a significant range extension to the east based on Flora of China's range to western Hubei. Large showy seed heads on this rare semi-evergreen to deciduous vine. Flowers yellow bells.
