SOLVED: Unknown clematis
Wow so beautiful flower, does anyone know what is it flower???
Reread your post and now know why your blooms are so small'It should be planted outside now,this is why your blooms are so small' Normally it will have 6-7inch flowers in the right growing conditions' Clematis need cool and cold temps in winter and their roots are very extensive' If it were me I would take it outside and plant and mulch and let nature do the rest. And mulch heavily too' HTH,Sis'
Crimson, it could be John Paul II. i bought 2 of them at walmart this year also.
Good luck on finding its true name
It does resemble Henryi and John Paul. I too bought the latter this year!!
You're winters are pretty brutal Crimson as you already know,lol' Since you're gonna move,if it were me,I'd plant it in a barrel but keep it inside a garage and keep it slightly moist all winter' Bring it back outside in spring after all danger of frost is past' When you see new starts,begin feeding' Have a plant base with casters so you can roll it outside instead of breaking your back wrestling it around,no fun,I know,lol' Now if you don't have a garage,put it where it will get sun,south if possible,and wrap the barrel with some "bisqueen"staple it to the barrel' Then I'd break up a bale of straw and totally build up around the sides and inside the barrel also deep for protection' Protect it from wind too,if at all possible'HTH, Sis'
