    I am doing some personal trials of Clematis crispa here in Saskatchewan near Saskatoon! I know they are not hardy since they are a southern native but sees sometimes defy our understanding. I have seed from 3 sources but would wonder if anyone is growing them in Canada west!

    Alarm bells went off for me, because I recently moved from a Daytona FL home where I had lots of this growing. Interesting project. I'll keep notifications on here to see if anyone comes through for you. I would easily recognize this on woods walks although I haven't noticed it yet. I'm near the coast but on sandy pinewood uplands. It does better on marl or on damp soils than on well drained sand. I don't think I can mail seed to you, can I?

    Sure would like to do that kind of walk. I watch for variations and particularly flower colors.

    I did. I haven't seen any where I've been roaming. I expect to be down there maybe next week and will let you know if I see any. It's been cold enough that the leaves may all have fallen.

    Just a little update from my workshop growing of plants. The seedling Clematis are trying again to bloom in the low light/erratic heat of the winter season!
    You can see some of the plants over on my blog!

    Well I have accumulated seeds from a number of seed sources but none are germinating yet. I do have other Clematis which are coming along so I thought I would post for a little spring cheer!

    Some seedling production from Clematis crispa and a reminder that I am looking for fresh seeds especially wild collected!
