I was wondering if any of you who grow this one can give me some feedback on flowering for Ville de Lyon. I read on a site that said it was not a prolific bloomer which surprised me.
It blooms great for me. Love love love the color too. One of my favorites.
Ville de Lyon is one of my most prolific and long blooming clematis I raise. It looks great paired with a pale purple/blue clematis like Emila Plater.
I was thinking to pair it with my Avant Garde and take Rebecca to another spot.
Any pics of what yours looks like in bloom?
I only have closeup photos, not of the whole plant, but mine blooms well in afternoon shade for perhaps as long as 7 or 8 weeks, at least 4 weeks so far this year and still blooming well. It is one of my favorites also, shown here with Hydrangea Endless Summer which it rambles through before climbing a fence.

Oh, what a cute shot of it with the pink hydrangea.
One of my best clematis! This one is on the east side of my house.
