Clematis ID

I don't grow that many clematis. I bought this unmarked from a local nursery 2 years ago. It has settled in quite well, and has a ton of buds and started blooming much earlier than my others. I would like to get another one, but don't know the name. I feel like it's fairly common as this was not a specialist nursery. Thanks in advance-Barb

Looks like Ramona to me but there are quite a few that color that are commonly found.

RE: Clematis ID

thanks to all of you..I am sure it is Ramona. For me, a really good performer and I will be on the look out for another. The iris is just a siberian iris...nothing special-a pass along plant so i can't give a specific id, but a huge plus in my yard---have had it at least 20 years and dug it, moved it, divided it, and given it away by the wheelbarrow...no pests, no diseases, no coddling (I almost take it for granted)...I am zone 8b if that helps.

Iris

I just bought a Siberian Iris at a big plant sale that is supposed to be a rebloomer but I can't remember the name. The Iris society had a booth at the show. I have several dwarf beardeds and beardeds but no Siberians. I wish Iris bloomed for longer periods of time. They have the coolest blooms and great colors. The biggest commercial grower in the US is here and they have the most amazing display garden, I go every year. They have Clemmies too (in the garden)
