Name that flower!

28 01 2011

I photographed this lovely plant in August when Carmen and I visited the Atlanta Botanical Garden. I couldn’t find an identification label, so I have no idea what it is and I hadn’t seen it before. Any of you plantaholics out there want to give this challenge a whirl?

IDENTIFICATION UPDATE: Fellow blogger and landscape designer extraordinaire John Black suggested it is Clematis armandii. I took a look at various sources on the web and he’s right! (Thanks, John) John is principal of Verdance Fine Garden Design in Palo Alta, CA. His work has been featured on HGTV’s Landscape Smart and Landscaper’s Challenge series. I interviewed John back in May 2010 about what it takes to be a landscape designer. Read his insightful, witty and inspirational answers here.

Would that be Clematis armandii? Fragrant flowers on a rambling vine with stiff but brittle stems…

Hi John! Thanks for the identification on that vine. You were correct! I posted it as an addendum and gave a link to your website and blog. Hope you’re doing well!

Oh this is easy. The flower in a Cindydendron. Genus species name: Cynthioposis talentus.
