yet another clematis question

Posted: 16/08/2016 at 18:25


May I just add, I am always amazed at the size of the seedheads compared to the flower size on some of the Viorna group clematis.


My little pitcheri, seed from Illinois, has lots of very small flowers but huge clusters of seed.

yet another clematis question

Ah, beautiful, clematis seeds.  Fantastic news about your versicolor, probably not a 100% true species but any hybrids you can raise, they are all fantastic plants, so important in a garden to have a few home raised plants, congratulations.

No, don't worry, they will be fine.  Just throw away the stem that you have accidentally severed, if you can then post the names of your clematis on this thread, we will be able to tell you when to prune them.

Hmmm, it looks very much like the clematis armandii from here, not ideal for growing in a pot, don't prune it, just carry on watering and feeding, it is Winter flowering.

Clematis Wilt: Ernest Markham

What makes you suspect clematis wilt ?


What makes you think Ernest Markham is prone to wilt ?


Have you treated it as Group 3 ?


Pruned it back to the floor in Spring ?

I have plenty of roots of the white form if anyone wants one.

Here we grow the white form and a  couple of lilac coloured, all grown from seed, and a Lady Wilson ??


They get a bit top heavy but are beautiful border plants, much admired by visitors.

Clematis confusion

Don't forget........... First year sleep, second year creep, third year leap.................It really does take a few years for a clematis to make a big enough root system to give us a good display of flowers.


This is my Queen Mother today, third year...
