Here are a few pics of my Clematis ‘Korean Beauty’ that clever Karensusan63 grew from seed. Karen sent me this back in June and I am hoping to plant it after work tonight, weather permitting.

Such pretty little flowers

Karen used this clever packaging to send her clems to a lucky few around the country all the way from Scotland! I kept it for the size comparison :-)

And this is how much it’s grown

Thank you Karen, it’s a lovely plant

You've really got a beautiful clem there, Annella. It will really cheer up your garden in situ. Clever of Karen to use a milk bottle...ingenious. :)

You have a great specimen there Ann. I planted mine in the ground. It's doing ok but no flowers, and definately not as big as yours :o)
I can look forward to it next year.

quite right Hywel!

Bluespruce, Clematis Koreana is a species, but this must be a hybrid of some kind. 'Clematis on the web' at Hull University has this info on it:-

Small, bell-shaped, scented, lemon-yellow flowers, reddish at the base. This is apparently a 'stable seed-strain selected from pure-bred C. chiisanensis, which comes true, germinates readily and flowers in the first year from seed.'

Group: Atragene group
Approximate height: 2.5 - 3.0 metres
Raised by: K Sahin
Date raised: sb2001 ni2001
Parentage: chiisanensis selfed (s)
Other name(s): None known

Further detail:
Tepals: 4; 5cm long, thick and fleshy, overlapping in lower half and gaps between in upper half; prominent ridges outside with spurs near the base

I have never been to Dorset...not ever. I shall go there one day. When I do my tour of the UK. Something I've always wanted to do...lol! Along with:

Fly to Stanstead and visit all the gardens in Essex and environs.
Drive and Walk the coast of UK
Visit Devon and Cornwall gardens + short break in Isles of Scilly
West Country Garden Tour (including Sprithenry of course....and Cora!!)
Northumbria including the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and Bamburgh Castle

I think I'd better get started!!

I would have to include Scotland on my list :-))

We have a great en-suite guest room any time you fancy it! :)) We could do shopping! ;)

22 Sep, 2010

 

I'd better start saving now for next year :-))

22 Sep, 2010

 

:)) cancel that shopping trip? I dont think so! ;)

If you like the autumn yellows so much, you could also try C.tangutica and/or "Bill Mackenzie". I think you will be delighted with both.
