ID - small, nodding, pale green

Carrie BMay 23, 2009

I noticed this clematis blooming for the first time in my garden this morning.

I've purchased quite a few clems from Silver Star Vinery & Brushwood over the past few years, but just looked through their listings & see nothing similar. I have no recollection of ever purchasing this clem. It's lovely and I'm delighted, though I suspect that a purchased clem was mislabeled.

The flowers are pale green, slightly nodding and about 2". Any ideas?

I think I figured it out! The kid woke up from the guest room/office, so I decided to go through the plant labels stored in there. I had purchased Clematis chiisanensis ÂLemon Bells from Brushwood, and this looks like it!

What I don't know is why I have this type one planted in and among my group threes. No wonder I've never seen it bloom before, and no wonder the flowers are all down low.

Yes, I'm sure that is it. :) Pruning an Atragene as a III the first few years won't hurt it and will get it off to a good start.

BorS - thanks. I planted it to grow up the other side of where I have c. montana 'Mayleen' planted, it just decided it wanted to hang out on the other side, with my 3's instead. I shifted it back towards Mayleen.
