Nice clematis and nice pictures. That's one I'd like to get yet.

I love mine too, it's scrambling through a large climbing rose.

Great picture! I have one and maybe it is in too much sun because some blooms look kind of shriveled

Yes the shape is the same, just a bluer color. Very nice!

I wonder if it's too late to order one of these 'Rooguchi'. I got a new trellis just so I could get a new Clematis, and I've decided on this one.

I love Rooguchi -it is the longest blooming clematis I have. It is also quite hardy for me in my 5b zone.

Clint - if you can get one, I would definitely recommend Rooguchi.

It just keeps growing and blooming, growing and blooming. It's gotten huge this year, Maybe because I gave it some fertilizer? Or the high amounts of rain? But wow, it keeps going like the energizer bunny this year.

I planted a Rooguchi this spring, but the vines didn't grow too much. It's blooming a bit now, but I was surprised that the vines didn't climb right up my trellis! Did it grow much for you in the first year?

Well, it didn't do much the first year, just got established. But they are not a climbing vine, you kind of have to train them each year, and you cut them back to the ground in the late fall after they die back.

Mine is a couple of years old now, it's more of a sprawling type, scrambling through a large rose bush, almost in continuous bloom now! Will be looking for another one to add to another rose.

Gorgeous, especially against that lime foliage! A sumac?

I love Avant Garde. I got it from Bluestone and it is huge now.

I was told that Rooguchi doesn't climb good. Is that true? The place I was looking says you have to tie it to the trellis. I hope others can clarify.
