Talking about American Virgin's Bower (Clematis virginiana), mellielong wrote:

The book "How to Know the Wildflowers" (1922) by Mrs William Starr Dana gives the common names of "Traveller's Joy" and "Virgin's Bower". The author states that the plant blooms in July and August, while "later in the year the seeds with their silvery plumes give a feathery effect." She also makes note of experiments Darwin conducted with Clematis. Whether she is referring to this particular species or the whole genus is unknown, but she lists it under this species. Anyway, she states that Darwin was conducting experiments regarding the movements of the young shoots of the plant. He discovered that "one revolved, describing a broad oval, in five hours, thirty minutes; and another in six hours, twelve minutes; they follow the course of the sun."

Talking about Clematis (Clematis Blue Light™), BookerC1 wrote:

This clematis produces quite large sky-blue blossoms. They may appear to be single blossoms when they initially open, but they then continue to open over a long period of time, until the same bloom is nearly a pom-pom. You may also experience double blooms on the first flush of blooms, and then later a second set of blooms that remain single.

This clematis took a bit longer to get established than some, growing slowly and only producing a few blooms the first couple of years. They appreciate some shade at their base (head in the sun, feet in the shade), if you can plant a low clumping plant at the base.

This is a really spectacular clematis, and well worth the patience it takes to reach that first year of really heavy bloom!

Talking about Clematis (Clematis Pink Chiffon™), BookerC1 wrote:

This clematis is a strong grower, and will reach full size in only a couple of years. If pruned hard in very early spring, it will be covered in pink blossoms in late spring. Dead-heading after blooming may bring about a second flush of blooms in the fall.
