when  the Bcs held its last meting at the Bird Garden , Sylvia Denny gave me three seedlings ofa cross between C.parviflora and C. fosterii , I never managed
to get any seeds from them until last year. I do not know what the pollen Parent is as I did not pollinate them from any
cross my self .  The nearest clematis was C.viticila . and C.repens  so I am hoping it is the latter . I have managed to get four seeds growing from the  Few seeds I got from the plant .  it will be interesting to see the results.

Hi Ron,
 
With reference to the C. forsterii x parviflora cross (fosterii does not seem to exist as a clematis). As you are no doubt aware this is a cross of two New Zealand clematis. I have not found it possible to cross the New Zealand group with any other than the native species, except that some Australian/Tasmanian species seem to be compatible. I think it extremely unlikely that your plant would cross with a viticella or repens.
 
Best of luck with the offspring anyway.
 
Cheers

Hi Roy .

Sylvia Denny gave me these plants , and one still has the label on it and that is the cross they had made .  The three plants have flowered before near each other and never a seed for years , and as soon as I move them to different places in the garden , not is direct sight of each other , one set seeds , I was told that they are single sex , so the pollen came from some place , it will be interesting to see the results , if it takes them as long to flower as the plant they came from it will be a year or two before they flower .  I am pleased you posted a comment on them I will try again to post a photo of the flowers , they are a plant I have only kept because they are evergreen and they were a gift .
Best Wishes
Ron.C.

These are the flowers of the C parviflora X C.fosterii plant given to
Me by Sylvia Denny , they  are not a striking flower but interesting to me
They are all in containers as my garden soil is sandy clay and after a days sun  it will dry out quickly , I  can't say I know a lot about these types of Clematis
I find they like to have moisture at the roots ,maybe Roy can educate me more on them  I  am always interested to learn more .
