The Collector's Corner Sales
Clematis onsite sales for 2019
All plant sale proceeds support the maintenance and development of the Rogerson Clematis Garden.
Clematis are available for sale at the greenhouse from 10 to 2 pm on Fridays and Saturdays, from May through October. We request you respect these hours. Our very limited staff and volunteers are working to make our garden the best it can be, and that is our mission, not selling plants. We do not ship plants mail-order. We do not hold plants for anyone; all sales are strictly first come, first served. We ask that after purchasing your plants, you take them with you when you’re done with your visit. One-gallon clematis are $20, and a limited selection of clematis are sold in two-gallon pots for $25. We are sold out of evergreen clematis until the autumn of 2019, but otherwisewe have an excellent, ever-changing selection available.
In addition to somewhat common varieties we have premium plants you won’t find anywhere else in the USA. These are rare cultivars, or species grown from seed or cuttings. You will find these in the greenhouse under the “Collectors Corner” sign. Each of these species and hybrids sell for $40 each. Here is the current availability list:
Updated September 3, 2019
Clematis coactilis: This fuzzy wuzzy species was evolved for the hot sunny shale barrens of Virginia. The plants you buy have been in the greenhouse, and won’t be this fuzzy until they’ve had a season outside. We have six now with more to follow.
Clematis fauriei: one plant
'Duchess of Waverly': Sold out for 2019.
Clematis florida var. flore-pleno ‘Plena’: Often overshadowed by it’s flashy fellow mutant, Clematis florida var. florida ‘Seiboldiana’, this elegant white double clematis likes hot sheltered sites. We have found it to be hardier and less capricious than ‘Seiboldiana’. We have three plants available, in bloom.
‘Grunwald’: Relatively new to the trade from Szczepan Marczynski. In the tradition of the great Polish breeder Brother Stefan Franczak, it is named for the site of a successful 1406 battle in Poland. We have two available now.
'Halina Noll': Later in the season
'Maksymillian Kolbe': One plant available with more to follow.
'Prins Hendrik': Sold out for 2019
'Regina': One plant now.
'Sharpie': Currently sold out for 2019.
C. texensis: Sold out for 2019
Clematis vinacea: We have four plants.
