And this is Rooguchi, second year flowering for me, and I am very happy indeed with him. Last year he bloomed well, but was fairly short. This year he's reaching up into the red rose on the trellis.

Angie, I ordered Rooguchi this year. Sadly I kept the soil too wet and it died. I love your picture, glad to know it really is that beautiful color. Hurray!

I have had Rooguchi for around five years it does well here in zone four. My sister had it and told me about it so of course I had to get it, love the bell shaped blooms.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!

Me, too, Daylilydreams! Last year's blooms were not quite as large, so these are a nice surprise.

Sharon, sorry you lost yours. Do try again, though. It's a lovely clem!

Thanks, Dawn.

Christine, they're still smallish, but the first one is probably a good 2 inches in height. Last year they were about 1 inch tall.

Another one to keep my eye out for. I bought one a couple of years ago that had similar flowers, Jan Fopma, and I accidentally killed it. Never saw it again, even at the same nursery. Of course I haven't been there for 2 weeks...lol...

Still sighing over your Rooguchi, Angie. It was the only one of mine that didn't make it, and it was the one I was most excited about! I keep looking for it locally, but haven't seen it anywhere here.

I know when I am in a position to order more clems, that one will definitely be on my list!

Other A:

My Rooguchi has perked right along all summer, despite all the heat and humidity, and even escaped (so far) the mildew it came down with last year when I first planted it. It's about 4' tall on the trellis and still blooming like mad. I have tried to keep it watered and am continually placing it back up on the trellis so it climbs through the red rose it's planted next to. I'm going to plant a C. Guernsey Cream on the other side so that I have red, white and blue on that trellis to celebrate my patriotic streak!

Sorry yours didn't make it. If I knew how to take a proper cutting for you, I'd send you one for rooting, but I've tried and failed. If you have a tip, I'd be glad to hear it!

I have no idea how to do a clem cutting. I remember seeing a whole thread dedicated to it on the other site, and recall thinking it sounded awfully difficult to succeed at. (Darn it, hate when I end with a preposition, but it sounds so pretentious to say "at which to succeed!).

I'll just enjoy your pictures and plan for the future!

Angie, I love the Red white and blue idea. what type of rose are they planted next to? Climbing?
All my clematis that are big enough , I took a branch, laid it on the ground and put some soil over a small area. Keeping them watered. Everyone says they will grow roots and I will have some clematis to trade next year.

My Polish spirit did this on its own and I've sent out a couple starts of it. I moved one start to a new area, I thought it died. Then this spring it appeared again. Of course now I want to move it again ... not sure if I dare, its too small.

Sharon: Thanks for the tip. I'll try that with my Rooguchi and see if I can get some slips to share next year. My Rooguchi is planted against a trellis with the red, no-name rose which came from Big Lots. DH bought it and some others for $1 several years ago and I have no idea what its name is. It's a deep red, though. The Guernsey Cream I will order for delivery and planting this fall.

Other Angie: keep in touch with me on my success (or lack of) in this regard. If it works, I'll send you a new plant!
