    Again, I hope I'm posting this in the right forum.

    These are just three of our few Clematis that we own. I am wanting to propagate these for the same plant sale as in my other post. I hope you can help me ID these as well. Here are the photos.

    The center one, I think is "Nelly Moser". Most Clematis are fairly easy to propogate, by cuttings, layering works the best, they take a while, to get hardy. They do not like to be disturbed,stake to keep them steady,(keep out of windy areas) place pebbles around them to keep the roots cool, and the "Tree Rats",(Squirrels) out. Every year I get people knocking on the door, asking about my "Nelly Moser", which is over 30 years old, so every year I strike a dozen cuttings, and give them away. The other Clematis, are also fairly common, but I do not know the exact names.

    Cool, thanks for the one ID. Someone else might get the other two.

    The one on the left, appears to be: Clematis "Lasurstern; described as pale purplish-blue. Flowers in late spring to early autumn.
    The one on the right, appears closely related to C."Henryi", which has the same petals, but is white, with a slightly different center. All three are described as vigorous growers.

    The only problem is, ours has 7 petals and Clematis 'Lasurstern' has only 6. Does this make any difference?

    It looks to me like the third one may be Cl. 'Gladys Picard.'

    My Clematis vary, from 6 to 8rarely 9 petals. Probably just due to where the flowers find themselves, in their sun exposure. Nutrition probably a part of the equation.

    Ok, I just thought it was their genetics that make the have more petals than others. I guess that would make a positive ID on the third one. Now I need just one more ID.

    Newt, they are all in the replies I recieved. However, I will List the three names so you can easily find them.

    #1 is Clematis 'Lasurstern'. #2 is C. 'Nelly Moser'. #3 is C. 'Gladys Picard'.

    Since some members have mentioned starting clematis, is it possible to grow cultivars like these from root cuttings? I know there are some clematis that will grow very easily from roots but what about this kind?

    Thanks Azaleafan. I thought there was some doubt about one of them.

    Not sure about root cuttings if the plant's root systems aren't large enough, but stem cuttings from the link Oscar gave should work.
