Identify Clematis Name & Type

Filed Under: Vine Plants, Gardenality Questions, Gardenality Help, Pruning · Keywords: Flower, Clematis, Name, Type, Fall, Prune, Garden, Gardenality, Plants, Upload · 1563 Views
I have a large flowered Clematis, deep purple with cherry red stripes on petals.
The tag does not identify name or type and says bloom time is spring-fall, height 4-15", prune back in spring.
Gardenality says you can identify plants if send a picture, but don't know where to send it?
Thank you. If you show me where can upload picture to, will do that.

Answer #2 · Maple Tree's Answer · M- There are 300 species of clematis with many cultivars being added every year. It would be hard to know exactly which clematis you have as so many are similar in flower color and size. Do you know if this plants flower is produced on stems from this years growth or on stems from the previous years' growth? Do you have a picture of the entire plant? Do you know if it is a vining or non-vining clematis? Does it seem to spread out with with leaf stems that would cling to a support or is it more compact? Matching the shape of the sepals, colors, and redish colored stamens I'm thinking this may be a popular cultivar named 'Gypsy Queen'. Is this a newly purchased plant? I'm also thinking it may have been grown in a green house and may be blooming early as the Gypsy Queen I believe is normally a later bloomer blooming in summer and fall. I uploaded a few pictures of this cultivar for you to see. If newly purchased you may be able to find where the nursery had received the plant from and could find out what plant it actually is. Possibly other members will see your question and picture of your plant and can also help with its identification.

Answer #1 · Maple Tree's Answer · Hi M-To the right of your name below your question you will see in blue letters 'Upload a Picture'. You can click on this and upload any picture you have saved on your computer. Make sure you are logged in in order to upload a picture. The number of clematis cultivars is huge with new ones being added every year. A picture may help. You can also click on the Plants tab above and type in the word Clematis in the search box. There you will see many pictures of cultivars that may match the characteristics of your plant. I noted a few links below to some clematis plant files that may match the plant you have. Just click on the links to go directly to the plant file.

Let me know if you have any problem uploading a picture.
