I was browsing older posts and found the Clematis on the Web site recommended by Miguel. Great site...but is there a similar site which gives the hardiness rating for each plant? Also, has anyone in areas with real cold winters used Wilt-Pruf or other anti-dessicants, or is it not good (or effective) for clematis?
Thanks.

You can check out the Links page (up top) for a few more. Have you used anti desiccants for this in the past? Usually I think of them for evergreens but I'd love to know if it aids deciduous plants, too!

Absolute clematis hardiness ratings are unknown for most clematis. If you look at the ratings for most you will see zones 3 or 4 to 9. COTW is conducting a survey to help elucidate which clematis are hardy and grow easily in various zones. Participation by all who are growing clematis is highly encouraged to help elucidate this type of info.
