I am delighted with my clematis they seem to like the cooler damp weather, but I was surprised to see a deep mauve flower on another clematis which has a stripe (dark cerise stripe) and looking through my gardening notes I had planted in 2009 'General Sikorsky' which did not come back after the first 2009 planting. I can now see it is a separate root from the existing striped Clematis. Is it possible that this Mauve flowered clematis has lain dormant since 2009, and suddenly decided to thrive??
