This is an inherited clematis in my garden, any help with which it is would be great, thanks. It's growing up the 'totem pole' (conifer trunk), needs to be tied in (no self clinging) and each petal is approx. 2" long.
I have a viticella 'Black Prince' (Ranunculaceae) with only four petals that looks the same.
Thanks Edd, it's very much like black prince but the colour in the photo is quite true. The colours of black prince seem to be more dark purple / deep red, is that true of yours?
I have just been out to look and yes yours does look a brighter blue. Try Clematis durandii?
Thanks Edd! I'd say that's it, never heard of that one before. I'll say again, amazing knowledge on here, been trying to google what it could be. thanks.
Don't know what it is but it's a beautiful colour. I want one.
I'm with Edd. Clematis Durandii. Mainly because I bought one last year and planted into a bigger pot and still haven't found a proper home for it yet.
it's a sprawler rather than a climber, which is why I'm struggling to find it a home.
Love your pots on the pole MrsG
Had to look this old thread up to remember name .Must post a picture of it again tomorrow , it's doing better than ever this year ( with zero attention other than tying in)! Plants in pots relocated btw.
