FFF12 - CLEMATIS

Clematis is a genus of about 300 species within the buttercup family Ranunculaceae. Their garden hybrids have been popular among gardeners beginning with Clematis × jackmanii, a garden standby since 1862; more hybrid cultivars are being produced constantly. They are mainly of Chinese and Japanese origin. Most species are known as clematis in English, while some are also known as traveller's joy a name invented for the sole British native, C. vitalba by the herbalist John Gerard, virgin's bower for C. viticella, old man's beard, applied to several with prominent seedheads, leather flower or vase vine for the North American Clematis viorna. This is Clematis "Lady Betty Balfour".

  2. Your flower photo is so sharp and vivid, i love it. This is the color of clematis i wanted so much to have, but the seeds sent to me from the US unfortunately did not germinate. Maybe it got so long in the mail which burdened germination.
