Clematis 'Aurora Floyd'

Violet flowers with a fuzzy central bar to the tepals.

This name appears in Spingarn's 1935 lists but the form now seems lost to cultivation. Indeed it was probably lost to cultivation very shortly after its introduction. This clematis is listed in Moore and Jackman's 1872 book. According to their footnote, the form was exhibited before the Royal Botanic Society in July 1865. By 1872 when the first edition of their book was published the cultivar appeared "to have passed out of cultivation, or in some way or other to have disappeared."
