Re: Help with plant ID

Ceres, I googled it and found it listed both as a cultivar of Clematis jouiniana and C. heracleifolia.
Then I checked the name w RHS and they list it as Clematis 'Mrs. Robert Brydon'. I wondered if it might be a cross of these 2 species. So I checked by running Clematis jouiniana and that is actually Clematis x jouiniana, apparently another hybrid of 2 species. ANd I noted that the RHS searches of both C. jouiniana and C. heracleifolia brought up Clematis 'Mrs. Robert Brydon'.

I wish someone would create a site for Clematis as findmy roses has for roses. They give absolutely everything, right down to the parentage.

BTW - I really WANT this Clematis!

I am most certain it is 'Mrs Robt Brydon' which is a non-vining one. I have
one growing in a approx 8-9' wooden obelisk painted cobalt blue. It grows
up thru the support and flows out & down from the top. 'What is it' is always
a frequently asked question by visiters to my garden. This was a clematis
that was sold one yr at the greenhouse (we usually have many varieties perhaps 30
but different ones each yr) where I work but not a common clematis to our
area. I saw it in a fabulous garden in Rockford Il last yr. Everyone on the
tour was taken by it but did not know what it was.
