I made the mistake in 2005 of buying a collection of six clematises for just under six dollars apiece from a mail-order catalog. Each vine was about a foot long, in either a 2-inch pot or bareroot in sawdust and barely alive, if at all.

I planted them anyway, and three have survived (Jackman, Marmori, Niobe; Carnaby, Koningskind, and Will Goodwin perished), but I did not know that Marmori and Niobe were alive until this year, when they managed to creep to the top of a 4-foot chain-link fence and pop out a few little blooms.

Marmori has a pale pink color with a slightly darker, almost imperceptible pink stripe. Here's hoping it survives and thrives!
