Hi lilyfinch, may I suggest Rhapsody, one that I have had for several years. It bloomed in the spring, and then the earwigs and pill bugs formed a buffet line around it so I cut it back and it is now blooming again!

Daniel Deronda is my longest blooming Clematis. It starts in late April or early May and still has a few blooms now in August. Without being cut back. It will have more blooms in a month or so for it's fall spurt.

Long bloom time and easy care: Emilia Plater or Prince Charles, though blue is relative.
