Good website to ID Clematis

samanthab(z5 MA)June 21, 2010

Hi all,

I know a lot of people (including me!) post on here asking for help on identifying their clematis vines.

I found this website and it really helped me. Just type in "Clematis" under Common Name and enter your zone. It will show you a list of Clematis vines that grow in your area and if you click on the name it will show you a picture as well.

Hope this helps!

Thanks for posting this - I seem to be trying to identify clematis with lost or just plain wrong tags all the time.

Sam..thanks for sharing this website..but IMHO, I feel if you do a search for clematis for your zones..This site is definitely lacking and restrictive. For instance, I did a search for clematis that I "Supposedly" could grow in zone 8 and the list was not large at all..I am successfully growing several varieties that this site says won't grow in zone 8..If researching for an identity of a clematis is your main objective then COTW is far the best and most comprehensive site available today..I especially love using the picture can narrow your search for specifics like tepal or anther color,breeder,pruning group, blooming period..the options are endless when trying to narrow the specifics at hand with what you see in your clematis ..Jeanne

The site is for Missouri so most of the plants are likely those that grow there.

Clematis on the Web is a Clematis resource for the world so many many more are available there.
