I decided to post separate threads for the different colours of clematis I'm looking for, so that I can compare them more easily, before going to the Harrogate Flower Show tomorrow.  Your suggestions will be invaluable, as will any photos you might have!  Thank you!

Again no photos - but diamantina is doing just as well as the pink one mentioned on the other thread !

Arabella - http://www.clematis.hull.ac.uk/new-clemdetail.cfm?dbkey=110 not self clinging so needs guiding round supports or can be allowed to scramble as ground cover.

Etoile Violette - http://www.clematis.hull.ac.uk/new-clemdetail.cfm?dbkey=26 - vigorous, hardy and flowers for months

Brunette - http://www.clematis.hull.ac.uk/new-clemdetail.cfm?dbkey=38 turned out not hardy enough for me but lovely

Fireworks - http://www.clematis.hull.ac.uk/new-clemdetail.cfm?dbkey=171 taking its time to establish in my garden but worth waiting for.

Jackmanii - http://www.clematis.hull.ac.uk/new-clemdetail.cfm?dbkey=237 common but a good doer

Pagoda - http://www.clematis.hull.ac.uk/new-clemdetail.cfm?dbkey=237 more subtle

Rouge Cardinal and Etoile Violette.

I had one called 'Romantica' (I think!) for a short while but I'd only just put it in when I moved-should have taken it with me. Very very dark purple. Have never seen it again sadly.

^I like a lot of those already mentioned.  I'm not sure if this one is purple, dark pink, maroon, or red, it seems to vary.. starting off towards the red end I think...

'Mme Julia Correvon'.. a viticella...

Madame JC is my favourite clematis, though I'd call it red. It is tough, beautiful and vigorous.

Thanks for all your help guys, especially obelixx!

HappyCT- Just looked up the clematis I mentioned-it's 'Romantika' and you can get it from Taylors Clematis. It's rather lovely! A blue purple and very dark. 

Another one for my own list!!
