Mid-March 2005: This year's large-flowered plants will be a mixture of brand-new plants plus one or two previously-flowered (second or third year flowers) specimens. Flowering should commence in April/May, when about 30 plants are due to open their first buds. Further additions as the season goes along. Tentatively hoping for a veritable cornucopia of blossoms in April and May 2005, since a significant proportion of the plants are derived from C. patens to a greater or lesser degree and will be flowering on the old wood. Therefore expecting to post pictures over the coming 6 -7 months of approximately 60 brand new large-flowered clematis plants, all raised from seed.

There will be whites, blues, pinks, reds, purples, and others; some will have a "bar" (a lighter or darker stripe); some singles and some doubles.

They will involve the patens, florida, lanuginosa and viticella groups. Some will be used in hybridising.

All will be beautiful!

Some new large-flowered hybrid plants in flower today.

1. The most enormous beautiful white flowers with green stripe, and purple-pink stamens, on a massive seedling. Unnamed as yet.

The flowers emit a sweet fragrance.
