Clematis Buds


I did a small photographic project for the National collection of Clematis Montana some years ago. It involved taking pictures of the flowers and buds of all the Clematis in the collection.
I was surprised at the different sizes and shapes of the buds.
So I decided to take pictures of the buds, showing as many of the Clematis we have here in the garden.

I don't really think this helps very much in the identification of any particular Clematis, but it may be interesting to view.

Pictures shown are not in alphabetical order, and are not to scale.
