Sorry thegarden, I've been calling you inthegarden, whoopsie! Anyway, here's the site where I saw the comment (it's in the first comment). Someone else said theirs was 12 ft tall, another said it was growing up their arbor....so I think yours should do great on the trellis you showed. Best case - the leaves and stems will wrap on the trellis for you, Worst case - you could tie or clip the vines to the trellis to help them up if you needed too.

Good luck with them! I'm definitely adding them to my clematis wishlist, haha!

Thank you They were kind of hard to find! Brushwood Nursery had them at the beginning of the summer but they are out now. The only place I found them now was Plant Delights Nursery. I'll let you know how they do if you'd like!

Yes, definitely keep us up to date with them and we want pics when they bloom! I think next year, you and I should do a nice clematis cuttings trade! . I've got four types right now, but they're still too young this year. Hopefully next year they'll take off and I'll be rooting cuttings like crazy.

I'd love that. Are they easy to grow from cuttings? I've never tried it but I would love that. Is it just root hormone and keeping them moist? Do you use grow lights?

Once mine grow larger I'll have:
Multi Blue, Diamantina, Nelly Moser, Horn of Plenty, Blue Light, and Rooguchi.
What types do you have?

I have Josephine (the bloom in my avatar pic is from this one), Andromeda, Crystal Fountain, and the Diamantina. I haven't tried rooting cuttings yet, but I've been reading up about it online. Seems easy enough. (Famous last words...). I'm thinking that before this winter, I should try to get a couple cuttings of each type going just in case they don't make it.

Raccoon once mine get a bit bigger I'll be more than happy to share some cuttings. My nelly moser will be much bigger next summer since that will be it's 3rd year planted.

Oh I love Josephine, Andromeda and Crystal Fountain. I love all clematis really. Haha!!! Seriously. That is a great idea! I never even thought to take cuttings before winter. That's genius. I will do that too. Hehe.
