So pleased you put this photo on Amy as it's reminded to add C. tangutica to my garden plants index! I had a 'Bill' for a few years, he used to climb up through a variegated Ivy - I guess Bill and Ivy fell out with one another as he is nowhere to be seen now! I have planted 4 of the tanguticas to clothe a back fence and the first blooms are out today ... :o)

I'm pleased to have been able to remind you Shirley ,I had a C. tangutica but it died I've no idea why I'll have to get another one , it's nice to have some late flowering climbers 4 plants on your fence is going to be a wonderful display !

Its pretty Amy. Are the flowers the size of C. Tangutica. I have tangutica flowering now and the flowers are tiny.

Very nice, Amy. And there are lot of people who think the same :-)

Dawnsaunt just asked the question I had. My tangutica didn't make it thro the first winter! strange that a specie from that part of the world should be so tender.

These flowers are smaller Dawn but then I've noticed several Clems have been smaller this year, Thanks Kat , I've had 2 Tangutica's in my garden Lori each time they died on me ,that why I was so pleased to see this Clematis doing well !

Thanks Amy. I found my C. Tangutica survived and self set in the bed and our winters are harsh, weird. I grew mine from seed so perhaps worth saving those fluffy seed heads :-)

You are clever Dawn I've grown from cuttings but never tried growing them from seed how long does it take for them to germinate ?

22 Sep, 2013

 

They were really easy to grow Amy. Loads germinated. Cant remember if I sowed them autumn or spring.
