Doctor Ruppel, the clematis I'd searched for after seeing LeadFarmer's one, had produced a last flower, it had already flowered. Bought it in Newhaven the day I met Bev, potty gardener, in the GC. So it will remind me of Bev.
Great choice BL. Mines had a second flush of flowers recently. I didnt cut it back last year so the flowers are higher up this year. Think Ill cut it back a bit next spring. Here a photo of it before it flowered this year, growing up the left side of my archway, its now grown all the way over the top which is what I wanted...
Another favourite clematis of mine is Piilu which grows behind my garage..
