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.
