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 starting in May, from 10 to 2 on Saturdays. 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 otherwise, as of the end of April we have an excellent 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 April 25, 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 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 one plant ready now, and five more ready in a month or so.

‘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 with a few more to follow.

'Prins Hendrik': We begin the season with two plants and more to follow.

'Prins Hendrik' showing its fascinating texture. For reasons known only to itself, this flower only has five sepals. This is highly unusual—expect 6 to 8.

'Sharpie': Currently sold out. There will be more later in the season.

'Sharpie' is a poor candidate for living in a container, where it becomes quite rangy. In the ground it is fantastic, as well as fantastical!

C. texensis: We begin the season with two plants with more to follow.

Clematis texensis , the red + red form, also known as the Tarpley River form. We believe the dark spots on the leaves are cellular damage from being watered on hot days. Maurice Horn at Joy Creek Nursery suggested this.

Clematis vinacea: We begin the season with 8 plants.

Clematis vinacea  was originally misrepresented on herbarium specimens as  C. crispa . They look nothing alike—the flowers of  C. vinacea  are much more tailored—and this plant does  not  want soggy feet. Average soil moisture is advised.
