The post about unrealistic catalog pics brought this clematis back to mind for me. I saw it first in a magazine and it was the most beautiful blue, a perfect baby blue like you usually only see in hydrangeas. I didn't live in a climate where I could grow clematis at the time and years later when I moved to a place where I could I tried to find it again and the company had pulled it from their website and catalog, when I searched online I only found pics of a much less impressive pale lavender flower.
I did a search again today and out of the mostly lavender flowers there were a few that were similar to that stunning blue I first saw in the magazine, are they real or fake? Has anyone grown Will Goodwin who can say what the real color looks like? With the perfect conditions can it turn blue?
If not, what is your favorite blue clematis?
