Clematis from seed

Hi, can anyone advise on this please.  Three years ago I grew a clematis from seed.  Unfortunately, I've forgotten the name of it and misplaced the seed packet, but I had success with one seed and it is now in a pot in the garden looking quite healthy.  The problem is it hasn't flowered.  Do clematis take their time to flower?

    Yes, some of them take a very long time.

    i think it can take up to three years before they might flower. If the parent was a hybrid or one of the large flowering cultivar it might be reluctant to flower at all but if it does it can be quite exciting as it there is a strong possibility that it will be different from the parent.

    will keep my fingers crossed that you get some flowers soon image

  • Sorry to be so long in getting back, but thanks for the info.  I was thinking of getting rid of it but I might hang on and see what happens.
