Here they are - all grown in containers:

Jackmanii - 5 years old. The color in the first pic is truer than the second.

I'll bet your neighbors drool with envy when they look over to your balcony! What a great show.


RE: Clematis pics for Strouper

Wonderful clematis blossoms, pvick. Mme. Julia Correvon is a favorite and one of my best bloomers. How do you winter over your plants? I grew one in a container last summer, overwintered it in my unheated garage and saw new growth when I pulled it out this spring. I have many, many clematis and get one or two new ones every year. I am trying to grow some by ws seeds. This is year two and still no germination. Hopefully this summer. My neighbor has a new wire fence and has told me he would be happy to have me grow blooming vines on it. Hurrah! More places to grow clematis!

For overwintering, I just mulch the pots well. Some of them get pulled close to the building wall. The clematis stay against the railing - I was amazed at how hardy they are.

'The President" this year, blooming now:

How can you NOT love these things??


RE: Clematis pics for Strouper

They are gorgeous! I also have a Jackmanii but it's on my mailbox. It's been there so long that I believe that it's holding my mailbox in place. rofl (10 years, maybe?) The mailbox needs "redoing" but we'll have to do it sometime when the plant goes dormant.

RE: Clematis pics for Strouper

Beautiful clematis! I had to move one this past year. I dug it up, put it in a pot, and brought it indoors. It actually bloomed in the house before I could get it in the ground! I WSed some Sweet Autumn seeds but as of yet, nothing.
