Past year was a nice year I had visitors from New Sealand and Danmark.

Ton Hannink came in spring and brought me some plants and one of the plants was an Irisevi named after his granddaughters. I planted the plant on a place where only is sun in the morning and where it is nice to also to see in winter the green leaves.

Hans in Danmark got the same plant and showed already the buds but I saw nothing. Then suddenly I saw three buds about 40 cm above th soil   .It were larges bud round 3 cm.

Ton was here lately and wanted to know how cold it has been here and I said less 20 and that sounds very well I must say the leaves looked better than of an armandii and the plant is worth to be breeded also because of the yellow flowers.

The plant gives flowers on old wood so next year I will have a lot of flowers

Hello Roelie
 
Good to see you on this site. Thanks for the picture of Irisevi. You are right it is good to see green leaves on a clematis in winter. Was your photo of Irisevi taken very recently - did it survive the very cold weather you had in Holland? What was the lowest temperature you had? Do you have any photos of the flowers?
 
My clematis accuminata var. sikkimensis, chinensis and parviloba var barlettii all have survived the cold weather here so far. The cold weather has returned this weekend so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

When I visited Roelie some weeks ago I was very surprised to see 'Irisevi' in a good condition outside in the garden. In that part of Holland had been at least -15 degrees Celsius. The plant is more hardy than I supposed.
