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.

Talking about Clematis (Clematis macropetala 'Maidwell Hall'), 4susiesjoy wrote:

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.

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."
