Clematis glaucophylla

The clematis of the viorna group have long been favorites here. The one shown above is Clematis glaucophylla, this one from a Kentucky population and distributed by Ellen Horning. I was well on as a gardener before I actually saw a member of this group as a living plant. I knew about them from books - not that there was much to be found about them in most books. I think it was an encounter with Clematis addisonii at the Morris Arboretum back in the 1960s which showed me what I was missing.
