My new favourite Clematis is 'Belle of Woking'. What Clematis makes you happy?

Last week we discovered we had an old, rare Clematis in the garden with the kind help of Raymond Evison. I've written about the mysterious clematis and its unmasking on my blog, with lots of pictures of this unusual cultivar...

It's been a fascinating few weeks and I'm interested to know what other favourite Clematis are out there. Do you love the reds like me ('Rebecca' is another favourite) or perhaps you also have an unusual cultivar in your garden or a different double flowered one?

    As always, Etoile Violette, but Niobe has always been a favourite of mine and the one I  planted here two years ago has been making me happy for quite a while  image

    Isn't it great how a moment of serendipity can change everything. It's what makes life interesting.

    Nice too that Mr Evison took the time and trouble to help you with your quest. I suppose that's true passion. He could easily have been "too busy".

    I love any and all clematis. I don't seem to have a filter. I want one of each! image

    Really lovely story dwdays  image

    As ppauper says, how kind of Mr Evison to take an  interest and look into it. Restores your faith in humans doesn't it! image
