Updated Tuesday, November 21, 2017. 23 clematis taxa in bloom (we include species, species varieties, selections, and hybrids in that count). The rain is spoiling some of the hangers-on, but those listed below have good blossoms or new buds opening.

Perhaps 'Snow Queen' got its name for the ability to keep blooming when it's cold enough to snow?

When the first inventory was taken of the Rogerson Clematis Collection in 2004, Brewster Rogerson chose this plant of 'Daniel Deronda' as the second cultivar accessioned after the two specimen's he had of 'Duchess of Waverley'. This is clematis #04-0003, but who knows how long Brewster had it in a container before we planted it in the autumn of 2006.
