Pink ones are papavers - oriental poppies - they take a few years to get going in my patch (by which time i have lost the label - but think this one is MrsP?!?*#??) but then they are here to stay.  Like so many things in the garden, patience eventually pays off .... Wish i had more of it 

Clematis (again!) Help?

Very pretty Sara - my first stop when trying to identify clematis is the Taylors site - search by Group 2 pruning to narrow it down a bit

Jimmmy - i also gave up with plugs of wild swan - bought full size plants from Hardys last summer/ autumn - and they are thriving - one about to flower already.  Worth spending the extra for a full size plant in this case i think (although i am generally a fan of plugs for good value and enough plants for a "drift")
