Clematis Societies:

Joining a Clematis Society is one of the best ways to get information and meet other people who love clematis. Most societies offer advice and information about growing, pests, diseases, new cultivars and other informational meetings and topics.

Other Resources:

There are many resources on the web for clematis information.

Ranging from the comprehensive list of species and cultivars found at 'Clematis on the Web' hosted by Hull University, through the many personal sites put together by clematis enthusiasts, to the many specialty nurseries with on-line catalogues and cultivation information. Either a search engine or URL references posted on the GardenWeb Clematis Forum will give you links to these sites. We cannot post URLs directly on the FAQ pages.
