|I was wondering if anyone knows if Patricia Ann Fretwell doubles in hot clims.|

|Hi, Anna. Yes, Patricia Ann Fretwell does put out double blooms even here in zone 9.|
Jul 29, 2011 5:16 PM CST
|Great! I am going to order one from MamaJack in Cubits|
Jul 29, 2011 5:35 PM CST
|When it starts blooming, you'll wish you had ordered two.|

|OK..you twisted my arm! I love kivirist ristmagi but I don't think I will get that one..so far ,I am the only one to order it...|

|Sorry, Anna. But I will get a Patricia Fretwell to help out if it looks like being cut. It was on my first list, but I am trying to be at least a LITTLE restrained and took it off. |
Every now and then I have a quiet chat with the skeletons in my closet...just so they don't come looking for me on their own.

|How about Clematis Kiri Te Kanawa? Anyone have it double in hot climates?|
Aug 21, 2011 4:46 PM CST
|I can't help you with that one, Anna. I've ordered it from three different nurseries, but they have all have suddenly not sent it to me at the last minute, citing crop failure or, in one case, an employee's failure to include the Kiri Te Kanawa plants in the shipping box. I'm beginning to suspect it doesn't exist.|

Maybe a ploy to make you pay double for it one day. I had a similar problem with Juuli, although not that many times!

|Clematis Kiri Te Kanawa is available from Brushwood now! Maybe it really does exist.|
Dec 3, 2011 9:59 AM CST
|Are you ordering it Anna? I got the email they were open, but haven't looked yet, as I'm scared to.|

|I ordered it, but I also ordered it from Joy Creek, just in case. I received Kiri Te Kanawa and Hoshi-no-Flamenco from Joy Creek a few days ago in the mail. They're big 1-gallon plants, but all that's showing above the dirt is an inch of brown stems and a forlorn brown leaf or two. I hope they're in there. |
My order from Brushwood was for Kiri Te Kanawa, Andromeda, Diamantina, Dancing Queen, Vyvyan Pennell, and Shin-Shigyoku.
Then yesterday Sue and I went out to some local nurseries and I found Rebecca (hooray, hooray, hooray), Freckles, and Belle of Woking.
I love the start of Clematis buying season!

|Good score! You must have notifications on some of those, b/c I think I was looking at Diamantina but was unavailable. I ended up ordering |
Josies Midnight Blue
Star of India
Kiri Te Kanawa
Delivery is in April, I am guessing you can plant them anytime.
I lost Freckles that was in a pot this summer, but was also unavailable at Brushwood. It is very rare to find clems at discount prices or any variety around here.

|Mine will be shipped to me in February. I did get notification that Andromeda and Kiri were in stock again, so I went straight to the website and ordered. Diamantina looks like this year's hot clematis, so I'm not surprised it sold out quickly.|
Dec 3, 2011 5:51 PM CST
|I checked on Diamantina and it is still available. I guess I passed over it b/c I wasn't sure if it would double in hotter climates. Do you know if it does? Both it and Ando are gorgeous|
Dec 3, 2011 6:39 PM CST
|Sorry, Anna. I don't really know anything about it. I just liked the picture, so I ordered it. I actually never have problems with clems not doubling, though. The ones that are supposed to be double are always double here.|

|I don't know if it will double for you, Anna, but mine was just gorgeous this year.|
