Yes! My clematis is blooming in November! It is Clematis cirrhosa 'Wisley Cream'. I really need to get outside with my camera and get some photos but I find that it's always dark - what's up with that? It has pretty little dangly bell blooms - maybe 2 inches long, pale whitish-yellow. The vine is evergreen with shiny round little leaves about the size of a quarter. I love this plant all year for it's cheery shiny foliage. And boy does this little beauty have tendrils - it is totally engulfing my front porch railing and getting tangled in my Beauty Bush. Anyway, I just wanted to brag a little bit that I actually have something IN BLOOM in November!

Very cool and congratulations! Its always exciting when things bloom in our late fall to winter months!
I should go check mine to see if its blooming too. One of my Viburnums which normally blooms in January is in full bloom right now. What's up with that?

Oh, I think I am gonna have to get me one of those!
My Armadi clematis did not survive--I think it got that fungus thingie, and then when the neighbor's moved the fence, that finished it off. So . . . since I have quite a few spring flowers, but less in the way of autum flowers, I think a C. cirrhosa is in my future.
