Montana alba

I think this looks to be too large for the Montana type.....I have the Alba Moongrower and it has 5 petals and no bluish tinge. This looks to be a summer flowering one...but sorry Womble, not sure.

Looks like it might be Snow Queen to me, because of the bluish tinge to the petals but give us a clue, Womble - is it in flower right now and has it flowered much earlier this year already? Or has it been flowering since about mid July onwards, and not earlier this year as well?

Your right Janey not M alba

i brought this the same time as the other clematis so up to 2 months ago and this is the only flower on the plant which appear last week.

So it could have flowered already, but you didn't have the plant then - does it say anywhere what prune group its in, or do you have no label of any description? You might just have to wait till next year to see what it does then, but I'm sticking with Snow Queen for the time being!

the only label on the pot was clematis and they were 2 for £5. perhaps i should invest in a book which lists all the clematis'.

not sure if this helps but its diameter is 7/8cm and there are actually 2 flowers but i can not see any more buds.

I've just added a photo to my photo's which shows the whole plant.

Not sure about Snow Queen, Bamboo.
Have a look at 'Forever Friends', it's here on this site ... 'Clematis on the Web'

If you find a book that shows pics of every variety, I'd like to know about it, Womble!

17 Aug, 2009

 

perhaps a book which shows most of them then. :)

just had a look on another website and the flower is too small to be a snow queen. I'm not sure about forever friends either.

try having a look at Taylorsclematis web site I find this site very informative.
