Cl. florida (forms)
0.csflor
($E)
Is a semi-evergreen species which sometimes is flowering throughout the winter with us, as well as flowering spring and autumn, and often seems to be dormant or semi-dormant during midsummer (often believed dead). This makes them a bit fickle and we find them one of the more difficult plants to survive (we are still learning) Therefore we will only sell this species as a two year plant (premium size). We do NOT replace this species if lost!

Cl. florida 'Merv'  
0.csflme
3m
zone 6-9

Flowers single creamy-white to greenish white 10cm across. Deep violet anthers! (xC) 2-3m. Summer-autumn. Cut flower! We have acquired this very fine form from Merv. Jerard. This is a better form than some of the forms seen overseas, and therefore have given it the cultivar name 'Merv' after its finder.

Cl. PISTACHIO florida 'Evirida'
0.cepist
2m
zone 4-9
($E)

Cl. flammula v. martima
0.csflam
4m
zone 6-9
($E)
(southern Europe, Italy, 1596)
Currently out of assortment
Very vigorous, flowers in masses, small white 3cm hawthorn-like scented (personally I think it is elderberry blossom). This form has narrow bi-pinnate leathery leaves which make it look evergreen, but it's deciduous! Will easily reach 4m in a season. Hard pruning! (xC) Very nice when planted together w. Cl. viticella. Flowering time here December to February. This type is seen growing in sand dunes in Spain. . . . . . . This species has been blacklisted. In my 20 years of growing this species in NZ, I have only found two surviving related seedlings. Still we recommend autumn pruning to avoid seed-ripening! Cl. flammula needs good drainage and are relatively short-lived; 10 years or so. This species is under threat in Europe.
