Hi everyone. I am fairly new to clematis and have made a few purchases this year. Mostly type 3's and a few type 2's. I got Omoshiru after seeing the lovely pictures here of her! She is decent sized with 4 stems and growing away in it's gallon pot from Stargazer Perennials. I also got Betty Risdon from Klehm's, and Piilu from Silver Star..another huge one with 4 stems!

My question is about growing type 2's in zone 5. I have read that Piilu can be treated like a type 3 and will still grow and bloom. I'm not sure about Omoshiru and Betty R. Has anyone grown these in zone 5 and had the stems survive the winter?

Maybe either Jo Ann (ge1836) or Pollyk will see this and they can help you. Jo Ann is in Pittsford and Polly is in Hannibal.

Thank you! I decided to let it bloom before I plant it. Can't resist!

I have Piilu and am in zone 5b. I treat mine like a type 2.
