Clematis Sources Update

garystpaul(4)January 6, 2010

Hi, folks. I'm starting to scout out sources for this year's wishlist and wondered if any of you know of good new places to look. These are my regulars:


 Silver Star Vinery

 Garden Crossings

 Seneca Hill

 Joy Creek

 Forest Farm


Appreciate any feedback here. Gary

Gary, check the following link below out. We had a thread on various sources last year I believe. Some of the vendors might not still be in business but the list is quite extensive.

Here is a link that might be useful: Clematis Sources

Hey Dude. I hope your life is settling down a bit so you can enjoy the finer thing;)

Thanks for bringing up the link. If I have time, (which I doubt because my aging parents have most of it) I'll check each link. If someone would like to do that before I can, it would be great for all of us. :)

Thanks, ncville and Janet, very useful. I'd have replied sooner, but the "notify of responses" didn't/doesn't seem to be working. Those lists, from Oct-Nov 2008 are a great resource. Something like that might be worth reprinting now that we're coming into the season. (I didn't feel at liberty to post someone else's list). Gary

I've purchased from Brushwood, Silver Star Vinery and Chalk Hill (who unfortunately doesn't sell clematis anymore). I have been pleased with all. Great clematis. Very nice and helpful. Just yesterday, I put in another order to Silver Star Vinery.

Oh boy, here we go flying off the Clematis cliff again this year into the wild 'blue' yonder. I have to put in my vote for Brushwood, Dan has got to be the best customer service guy around. Really knows his plants!!. Love Silver Star and Joy Creek cant be beat for selection. I live on the West Coast so I keep to this side of the continent due to shipping concerns. Best of Luck. Kat

I found it interesting that Brushwood won't sell Sweet Autumn Clematis anymore. I guess it's way too invasive there.
I have one, just planted last season, so we'll see how it goes, but I have a rather large and long hedgeline for it to climb to it's hearts content.

It sure is invasive here in NC. With Dan's move to Georgia in progress, I am sure it will be much more invasive in Georgia than it was in Pennsylvania.

Miguel, I may have asked you this before but I have a c. terniflora on a fence (planted last year, spring) along with a c. texensis gravetye beauty. Is the terniflora going to beat up on the texensis and win the battle? If so I am going to move the texensis. Thanks for the input. When is Dan going to be selling from Georgia? Kat

Depends on how close the terniflora is to the Gravetye Beauty. Terniflora is a monster clematis and will consume most other clematis.

I think that either I received a general email from Dan or saw it on his website. I believe that things will be shipped from PA this spring but that in the fall, all shipments will come from GA. Don't hold me in cement on that but it was something along those lines.

They are close, too close to risk losing the Beauty. I'll move her, next opportunity. Thanks.
