Ahh, John. We do not have many varieties of clematis at the Botanic garden as we have four specific lines of botanical education illustrated there - native and rare local plants, Plants that grow in Mediterranean type climates, useful plants and the evolution of plants. The garden is unique in that being the youngest University Botanic garden (built in 2005 from the plants in the old Brackenhill site) it was designed as a beautiful garden and as an amenity for the people of Bristol. It does have beautiful "Rooms" like the Pollination garden and the Bog Garden and lake but the clematis you would find would be climbing over the verandah in the Chinese Herbal garden (White flowered Clematis chinensis) or climbing the house walls. Try googling a specialist clematis grower and put the colour of your plant in the search engine.
