Somebody gave me multiblue clematis seeds from her dear MIL's house down South somewhere and Ihaven't planted them yet. I also took some of the seeds off my Dr. Ruppel to plant this year..I've heard it takes years to grow by seeds but if I get something that is as beautiful as my Dr. Ruppel and your clematis vines..It's worth the long wait! Do you know the name of your variety and what prunning # is it?

Gone But Not Forgotten

Hi Pippi,

These two are my first clematis ever so I know very little about them. The one that seems to have the most varied shades of color is Kingfisher and you can read about it here: Clematis (Clematis Kingfisherâ„¢)

The other one is Blue Ravine. It's a little smaller, less bushy, and that's all I know about it too. Here's the database entry for it:
Clematis (Clematis 'Blue Ravine')

It's a good thing all the information was already there when I added the photos to the database because I couldn't have contributed any. It does say in the db information that they are both in pruning Group 2.

Hope that helps. Good luck with yours and with all your gardens.
