Hi, can I ask, if you Hybridise a clematis and create a new one ( I can only dream of one day achieving this ) How would I go about registering it's name? And I have heard lots of plants are licensed to their breeders so am I allowed to even do this legally? I would be doing this for my personal pleasure nothing more so even if I managed to create a new clematis one day in the future and registering a name to it, how would I go about sharing it with others? It would be a shame to not be able to share with other clematis lovers should I be lucky enough to create anything that is anywhere near beautiful which is my dream to do before I get old lol.

Many thanks

A few tips to considder:
Anyone can name their own plant, but the name used must not have been used before. It is only really worthwhile registering a plant if it is, significatly better than others of its type, either in flowering period, colour and also if it is of interest to the trade. Also to considder, the first years flowers may be significantly different in it subsequent years, is it hardy, can it be easily vegitavely propogated, being the only way to get true clones.
Be prepared to throw away a few hundred plants before something arrives that is worthwhile.
Best of Luck
