We bought one only a few weeks ago as I had always wanted one mainly because of the pretty seed heads but the yellow flower is lovely too.

I had a C. 'Bill MacKenzie' for a few years ... he eventually gave up and when I saw the C. tangutica on offer I bought 4 of them! Those silky seed heads are so pretty in the Autumn ... enjoy them ... :o)

I had one of these when I lived in the old cottage. It grew huge, and always had thousands of flowers and pretty seed heads. It's a lovely plant to have :o)

I wondered what the name of this was as I see one on my walk with kayleigh, its lovely at this time of year and the seed heads remind me of old mans beard... must get one...

You're lucky. I planted two of these earlier this year, but no flowering so far. They look healthy enough so hopefully next year. I never am very lucky with clematis.

Hywel - I agree with you ... it's a lovely bit of colour at the beginning of Autumn.

Holly - they're quite easy to find locally ... hope you manage to get one for your garden.

Dotty - after the rain eventually stopped today at around 6pm I took a look at them and there are about a dozen flowers now ... :o)

Lijemc - I wonder if there are some buds on yours waiting to open .......

I had one of those in the old garden. Fast growth rate, they'll certainly do, what you have in mind for them Shirley, no problem at all! The flowers are nice and the seed heads very unusual - a good talking point, if you can remember the name!!!!

Lol Helenium ... I shall definitely remember this one!
