|Hello all! I am hoping that someone here knows of a U.S. grower who currently has 'Pistachio' in stock. Several of my neighbors have stopped asking where to purchase it, but I can't find a grower who has it. Brushwood has it listed on the website, but currently has no availability. Any suggestions would be appreciated! |
Mine is blooming now, and that is motivating neighbors to ask. Evison truly outdid himself with this one... it's a great performer here in the Deep South. It's the first to open, lasts a long time on the vine, is mannerly in its growth habit, and blooms three times a year here. The only problem is some browning of the leaves in the hottest part of summer. But, since it can perform in partial shade, the browning could easily be solved with the right planting location. Here's a photo of it just beginning to bloom in my front garden (photo from April 10, 2013).

|Have you tried starting cuttings? I've had some luck with some varieties but not others.|

|Very nice clematis. And who can resist a pistachio? I can't add any information except to go on the waiting list at Brushwood. We all know patience is a virtue when it comes to clems|

|My eyes are not as good as they used to be so I cannot see the details on this clematis. But this is not the same one as that listed as florida 'alba pleno' on the Silver Star Vinery website, is it?|

|Hey, folks! Seems like forever since i was here. Just had a great conversation with Dave and he reminded me that I can (and should ) participate. Well, this is a great place to start! I just updated our inventory of C. Pistachio after reading this message. Seems we had a database (or maybe human) error and we have plenty! -Dan|
