I am interested in these two clematis. Does anyone grow them? What is their habit? I've read that 'Romantika' is prone to Mildew. I wanted to check with those that grow it to see if that is indeed the fact. Thanks for any info you can provide.

I grow both of these but one planted Fall of 2014 and one fall of 2005 so it's too early to help much. Negritianka is climbing on John Cabot rose and climbed 6 ft last year and had quite a few blooms. It doesn't seem to be especially bushy and this year it is really taking off Romantika has yet to bloom but the vine seems very vigorous and the stems are thick and sturdy. I live at 4200' elevation so my growing season is short compared to most people but I'm pleased with how well these clems are growing.

@AlanJ
Just came across this old 2016 thread and I had to comment.

First of all, you did receive replies on your first post in the Clematis forum, you just never came back to comment on it. The thread "Here are PICS of my problem Clematis 'Versailles'" in Clematis forum
And actually I see you have several posts that have replies to them and that you participated in.

Second, you posted at May 24, 2016 3:45 AM PST 6:45 AM your time but about 10 hours later you got upset that you didn't get a reply. Less than a day. This forum isn't as highly trafficked as other and members have busy lives, and maybe some that did see the post don't grow either one so didn't comment.

I grow Clematis 'Romantika', never had any problem with it, it's a favorite.

I bought my first 3 clems this year (Madame Julia Correvon, Ville de Lyon and Romantika) and have no idea how they will do with 6a winters, 100 degree summers with high humidity and fungi of every description. (Grapes do okay here, as long as they are disease resistant - we have a few small wineries. Mushroom hunting is very popular here. Hilarious! )
Your success with Romantika gives me some hope...
Any suggestions for a large flowered lavender and a light pink that resist mold? I'm trying to stick with pruning group 3, so I can just treat them all the same.
I appreciate all the volunteer time and effort you and the other moderators put into this site. I tip my hat to you.

Diana, I only have experience growing them in my climate so as far as mildew/mold and high humidity and heat, I wouldn't know.
You got some great starter ones, I would start a new thread asking for suggestions for your climate.

Thank you Sue. The article by zuzu on clematis suitable for Southern climates had those that can handle both California (dry) and Florida (humid). I think I'll look into Comtesse de Bouchaud and Victoria. The database lists them as "easy to grow" and "good for beginners".

I grow Romantika in zone 6b and mildew has never been a problem. My plant is about four years old and receives direct sun from mid-morning on. It is quite vigorous and a heavy bloomer. I have it planted with Charles de Mills an equally vigorous rose.

Deborah,
Mine is still alive, although not really growing lately in the heat. Thanks for the encouragement and lovely photos!
