Clematis Types - Which one is yours?

As climbers, Clematis are unsurpassed in their long flowering presence, their rich diversity of flower shapes, their wide array of colors and tolerances in terms of exposure and climate. Members of the Ranunculaceae family, Clematis include more than 300 species and hundreds of hybrids. They are divided into 12 groups.

Clematis - Early Large-Flowered Group

Their flowers are incredibly large, 6-10 in. across (15-25 cm). Star-shaped, they may be single, semi-double or double and are available in a wide range of colors. They usually bloom in two waves. They bloom in late spring or early summer on the previous year's growth. They often repeat blooming in late summer and early fall on new wood.

Clematis - Viticella Group

The Viticella group of clematis originates from Southern Europe (Italian Clematis) and includes deciduous climbing shrubs regarded as being durable, easy-care, vigorous and free-flowering.

Clematis - Late Large-Flowered Group

Their flowers are impressively large, 5-8 in. across (13-20 cm). Star-shaped, they may be single, semi-double or double and are available in a wide range of colors. They usually bloom in two waves. They bloom between early and mid summer on new wood. They often repeat flowering in late summer and early fall.

The diverse clematis family provides you with a wide choice in terms of flower size (large, small, single, double) and shapes (cross-shaped, bell-shaped, star-shaped), color (purple, blue, pink, red, white or bicolor), fragrance, disease-resistance.

Clematis - Montana Group

Healthy, sturdy, easy to please, the Montana group of clematis includes the most vigorous deciduous climbers within the clematis family. Their flowers are not as large or flashy as those of the large-flowered Clematis varieties, but they are full of charm, fragrant and so abundant!

Clematis - Atragene Group

The Atragene group of clematis includes early and small-flowering clematis, which are extremely hardy, undemanding and among the easiest to grow.

Clematis - Evergreen Group

The earliest Clematis to flower, the Evergreen group includes small-flowering clematis which provide gardeners with some of the greatest pleasures in winter.

Clematis - Herbaceous Group

The Herbaceous Clematis group contains wonderful herbaceous perennials for the border, which clamber over other plants. They die to the ground at the end of each year, and have no twining petioles to help them climb.

Clematis - Orientalis Group

The small-flowered Orientalis group contains the truly yellow clematis. Their bright yellow flowers are lantern- or star-shaped and often nodding. Each flower produces showy pom-pom like seedheads with silvery silken tails that persist and disperse over the winter and early spring months.
