Here's my favorite Clematis. I got it from Bluestone's 50 percent sale last year. I just ordered another one. You can't beat this plant! Clematis 'Rosemoor' keeps blooming and blooming all through summer.
My Grandmother started me growing Clematis over 30 years ago when she used to dig the wild ones out of the woods. We didn't even know what plant they were back then. I found out later they were Clematis pitcheri. Do any of you grow the native Clematis pitcheri? It even has a fragrance to it. It's no Gardenia, but it is an unusual smell.
Beautiful! Does it really bloom all through summer? Does it bloom in flushes, where it blooms, then rests, then blooms again? I would LOVE to find some clematis that bloom longer and later than the ones I have. Yours is gorgeous!
