The Clematis Conundrum

So many Clematis and passionflowers, so little time! And space!
Choose from 73 different Clematis and 7 different passionflowers!

No garden or patio is complete without the Queen of the Vines. But how do you select between the best cultivars? How do you find the one clematis you’ve been looking for for years? Or maybe you want to discover a cultivar you never knew you needed until now! It can be a real CONUNDRUM! And then we have amazing hardy (and non-hardy) passionflowers. That’s a whole new dilemma!

The other problem is that few nurseries could ever carry more than a fraction of the hundreds of types of Clematis at any one time. At Phoenix Perennials we have created the Clematis Conundrum Pre-Order to bring together a huge selection of the best and most unique Clematis available for pick-up at the nursery or shipping in mid to late April! Now you can find your perfect clematis (or passionflowers) all in one place and with ease!

Peruse our selection below, make notes on which plants you’d like and, when you’re ready, click on the link at the bottom to place your order. You might want to right click the link and open the order page in a new window so you can view this image page and the order page side by side. Have fun!

Most of our Clematis are in one gallon round pots with a three foot stake. The Evison Clematis are in two gallon pots. All are full blooming size.

The Raymond Evison Collection

Sadly, we have recently been informed that this is the last year that our grower will be offering the Raymond Evison Collection. However, we are pleased to announce that we will be growing a large selection of Evison cultivars ourselves this year though most are different than the ones below. They will be available later than the plants in this pre-order likely in May or June. They will be available for mail order and at the nursery for in-person sales. 

Raymond Evison is England’s King of the Clematis and currently the world’s most famous clematis breeder. His cultivars are among the best ever produced with huge flowers, unique colours, and long and repeat blooming.

Boulevard Series – Compact cultivars perfect for containers, patios, and small spaces.
Patio and Garden Series – Classic medium to large-growing clematis for the garden to grow on walls, archways, trellises, pergolas and into shrubs and trees.
Regal Series – Ornate double flowers perfect for containers or the garden.
Miniature Series – Dwarf plants with multiple stems to just 20 cm (8 in.) long covered in masses of flowers. Use them in containers, hanging baskets, groundcovers or accents at the front of the border.
