The Clematis that keeps going and going

sandyl(Zone 6B -7)August 4, 2012

This is a picture of a clematis that I got from Ms. Glenda at the TN Plant Swap and this little Clem is a tough little guy. These pictures were taken today August 4th and this clematis is potted in a 10 gal black pot and has been on my from porch all summer and the temp has reached 114 degrees and in full sun.. This little Clem is the only one of my 25 that hasn't brown out from the heat all summer.. The rest of my clemtis's have all been prunned back after their first flush but this little guy just keeps going and going. I haven't ever had one that withstands the heat the way this one has this summer and its the only one that I don't have a name for. Thanks Ms. Glenda. I have truly enjoyed this no name Clem and isn't it beauitful?

Very pretty! If you find out which one it is, let us know.

I'm not sure who Ms. Glenda is. Which swap did you get it at (west, middle, or east)?
