Updated Tuesday, January 22, our first update of 2019! Having had, thus far, not much of a winter, all of the winter-blooming clematis are going full speed ahead. The last to start is Clematis cirrhosa var. cirrhosa, which occupies a lush specimen of Pittosporum tenuifolium ‘Silver Ruffles’. Even C. napaulensis continues to flower, even though each bloom is teensy. The wintering hummingbirds like them all. The nine winter-flowering clematis forms we have are all located inside the terrace to the west of the greenhouse. The gate is open, and they have their own sign.

Fallen sepals of  C. cirrhosa  var.  cirrhosa  captured in the pittosporum foliage offer a look at the spotty interior surface.

C. cirrhosa  ‘Ourika Valley’, as well as the other winter bloomers, are putting on a wonderful display.
