Already here when we moved in so it would be nice to know what it's name is. It hasn't performed very well this year but might do better next year after a bit of tlc.
I wonder if it could be 'Fireworks'. Have a Google and see if looks the same as yours.
Thank you, Lesley, that could be it. An image search for Cleamtis Fireworks brings up all kinds of different ones but I followed a link to a specialist grower and it looks just like it. It also said that it tolerates shade which is a good thing as it has been planted under a tree
Thank you for the quick response.
Other possibilites are "Mrs N Thomson" and "Anna Louise". The main difference is in the anthers in the centre but I can't see those well enough in the photo.
Very nice Daryl - whichever one it is
Many clematis are better in a little shade as the flowers don't fade so quickly. Give it plenty of food and water next spring to get the best from it.
Thanks Bob and Fairygirl. I'll go and take a closer look at the anthers tomorrow and get a better picture if I can.
Yes, I'd say its "Firework" too. I have one.
It's amazing how similar they all look. I hope you can get an ID Daryl as it's always good to know the names of plants in your garden.
Took another photo today. Does this help to narrow it down Bob?
