Talking about Clematis (Clematis viticella 'Polish Spirit'), valleylynn wrote:

This is such an amazing clematis. It has been blooming all summer, nonstop, even in the tough drought conditions we had this summer. It's still blooming November 9th and even has some new buds. It will be interesting to see the date of the last bloom for this year.
It was given very little water through the months of July, August, and September, when we had no rain. The roots were shaded and seem to hold enough moisture to keep the vine happy.

Talking about Clematis (Clematis virginiana), Chillybean wrote:

This is a US native vine that can grow in sunny or part sun locations. For the plant to go to seed, you need both male and female plants. This is what I consider the plant's glory, those amazing seed heads! We have eight of these in hopes there will be at least one of each gender. This we will find out the first time they flower.

We dug up an alien clematis to make room for one pair. Two were put in as dormant roots last fall; one did not make it. I ordered seven more plants. Most are in part shade, but a couple are along a fence line that gets sun all day. They started out slow this spring, but then they really took off as the season progressed.

Unlike alien Clematis, which the rabbits have eaten down to the ground, this is poisonous to mammals. I really do not like having to chicken wire plants to keep the rabbits out. The only feeders so far, are whatever insects nibble on leaves and there is no heavy infestation.

Edited to add: How can I forget the other common names I appreciate more than these listed on this page? Old Man's Beard (Admittedly, which is used for other plants as well.) and Prairie Smoke on a Rope.

Talking about Clematis (Clematis Sapphire Indigo™), chelle wrote:

This clematis was by far one of the best impulse buys I ever made. I planted it almost as an afterthought, thinking a bush-type clematis wouldn't be one of my favorites. I was wrong. It truly is an amazing plant! In just its second year it has produced more blooms than I'd have time to count, and has been my longest blooming clematis to date.

This beautiful clematis blooms in the early spring on old wood and is completely covered with bloom from bottom to top. If needed. it can be trimmed right after it finishes blooming so it has a chance to make blooms for the next year.

Talking about Clematis (Clematis fremontii), 4susiesjoy wrote:

This delicate, small, bell-shaped, blue bush clematis blooms in the early spring and has a short bloom period. Even with the short bloom period, it is so pretty while it is blooming and the leaves are attractive enough even when not in bloom, so it is well worth growing. It is well suited for a rock garden.
