We grow it in a large terracotta pot with canes for support, only about 1 metre tall. Special.

Yes. That is special Richard. Do the petals have a velvety feel?
Beautiful Richard. Is it kept in a greenhouse?
Richard, is there a background story to the name ?
The plant is grown in a pot outdoors, is reliably hardy, but I bring it in to the greenhouses when the weather is really bad for the sake of the pot.
It is a Japanese cultivar, named for Dr. Mary Toomey, the well known and much respected lecturer and author of several clematis books,
Here she is last year on a visit to our garden after a clematis lecture in our local village hall, accompanied with the Hardy Plant Society, Ranunculacae Group, a wonderful day, which I will never forget.
Thank you Richard. I am sure Dr Toomey is delighted !
It's a wee beauty!
For the ' anoraks ' of the clematis world !!
Lord! That's lovely. How are you growing it Richard i.e. do you trail it horizontally or round something or upwards? It's a beauty.
It is in a large terracotta pot with 3 cane sticks forming a tripod, I wind it round the canes
