Prince Charles, Niobe, flammula, Victoria, Huldine, Red Ballon, Blue Angel, are not viticellas, and the montanas are early season.
Madame Julia Correvon, Rubra, Kermesina are all good red viticellas, Chatsworth is a good pale blue flattish flower, Hanna is a pale blue nodding bell, lovely, both viticella.
The native species, vitalba, is superb though trees, summer flowering and scented, or I have several other species, have a look at this ladakhiana, raised here from seed. Sorry unable to upload picture.
Perfumed viticella x triternata rubromarginata is highly scented ( flammula x viticella ) much better, tougher, than species flammula as it has viticella root system.
