 o
Clem ID, can you help?

Here is a couple of pictures of what was labeled clem. Ramona when I bought it. I'd just like to be sure. I have had it for about 3 or 4 years and I cut it back after it bloomed this spring to about 12 inches above the ground. The earwigs and pill/sow bugs were having a feast and it looked terrible. It has grown to the top of the trellis since then. The trellis is 5 feet tall, I think.

Thanks in advance,
Tanya

I don't have The President and am not familiar with it close up like I am Ramona so I can't say.

It looks like Clematis "Rhapsody" to me..the pics on COTW doesn't do it justice as they are more blue.."Rhapsody" is one of the truer blues..IMHO...Jeanne

Here is a link that might be useful: Rhapsody

Thanks for all the replies. Jeanne, I believe you are right. The flowers open purple but fade to blue. It now has about 8 or 10 open flowers and more buds getting ready to explode!

I agree that it looks like the Rhapsody that I bought this spring. Love the bluish flowers
