Clematis

Which clematis have you lost ? The easiest and most reliable are the Group 3's.

Try a viticella or one of the taller herbaceous varieties.

 Compare your picture with the one from Westphal in Germany, the experts.

Also, clematis do not have petals.

Also, I have heard that Aldi are selling a range of 7 cheap clematis, including Hagley Hybrid and Justa,

Daintiness, I suggested on an earlier thread that your clematis could be Justa.

You say it cannot be Justa because Justa is ' a viticella ' and they have smaller flowers.

Wrong, Justa is not ' a viticella ' it is a member of the Viticella Group, in which several cultivars have larger flowers.

I still cannot accept that even Lidl would sell HFYoung as a ' Summer Flowering Clematis '

HFYoung flower size 10 - 22 cms.
