Name of Flower with Golden Showers Rose

QUESTION: Hi Annelie. Can you provide me with the name of the purple flower with yellow center shown in your website picture with the Golden Showers climbing rose. Here is the link: Golden Showers Rose
The two flowers (rose and other) make an gorgeous combination. Thanks for your time and input - I appreciate it. Ed
ANSWER: Hello Ed,
The flower that is featured with the Golden Showers Climber is a Jackmanii Clematis vine. It flowers during spring and summer so the rose and vine has the same flowering time which is great, because the color combinations are so lovely.
The Jackmani is actually more purple so the color in the photo is off.
I added a link to the Golden Showers page where you can buy the Clematis vine and also see the correct purple colors of the flowers.
The Jackmanii should be pruned in early spring down to about 2 feet off the ground.
In Southern California where you live that would be in January when we prune our roses.
Happy Rose Gardening,
Annelie
