This clematis is labeled 'Crystal Fountain,' but it doesn't really look like it.



Clematis (Clematis Crystal Fountain™)

Do you think it might be 'Blue Light' instead?

I don't think it's 'Crystal Fountain'. Definitely looks more like 'Blue Light'.

I think I'll move my photos to 'Blue Light' then. Thanks, Chris. Smiling

Whah, I want a Blue Light! It always seems to have a lot of that greenish cast to it. I have one that has maybe 3" growth, from one of those Costco bags. It will take forever to give me something substantial and bloom worthy.
But Crystal Fountain is blooming.

Sue, I bought it at Ace Hardware the last time we were there. I bet they still have some. And I think Emerisa has it. We have to check under both names there. I'm so glad it turned out to be Blue Light. My Blue Light from Costco had a couple of inches of growth, but now it seems to have none, so I'll have to wait until it recovers.

That's where I got my Crystal Fountain from, Ace. Will have to check there again and also Emerisa. Thumbs up

Did the tag say what supplier it came from? We can always go to the source. Green Grin!

I'll go right outside with my flashlight and see. Back in a flash.

The tag says Donahue's. Of course, the tag also says Crystal Fountain. Hilarious!

I'm sure it was from Ace because it has $11.99 written on the container with a white pen.

I love my Blue Light. It gets totally covered with flowers every year. And it's really easy to root with the layering method.
