I'm pretty new at gardening. I planted this one last year, and was amazed when the flowers started to appear a few days ago. I'd like to get more, but I'm don't know what it is. Thanks to anyone who can help me.
Do you know what this is?
Hi I think they may be Japanese windflowers....a beautiful thing ...but can be a little invasive in the wrong place....beautiful whatever it is
I'll probably forget to come back here, and I can't see the small photo so well, but I wonder if the lovely purple blooms aren't a clematis. Do you see how it seems to be climbing up the fence? Can't say for sure, but I do understand why you'd want more!
I agree, I think it looks like a Clematis. I don't grow them though so I have no idea which one.
Here are the ones from Plant Files if you want to look through and see if one looks like yours
Here is a close match of a commonly sold clematis>
& some others
If they grew in the tropics, I would grow em. They are a well behaved vine.
chrissy100, both clematis and windflowers are Ranunculaceae, they have many things in common, including the shape of their flowers.
We have morning glories>
Thanks I did not know they are related.....I love your morning glories
in Ozz- they grow like triffids....very pretty triffids.....growing over a whole backyard in the Summer......Ours seem to be a much deeper blue....guess there are many different kinds....happy gardening ;-)
No doubt about it... definitely clematis. If you want more, they come in tons of colours and flower types.
How pretty! I want one. Of course, I never met a flower I didn't want.
