Well, now that I have found out a bit about the last 'mystery purchase' 
(many thanks, Kay!), I have another leftover from last FAll's buying 
excess that I can't identify...

It's a clematis with very finely cut foliage....Clematis 
biondiana...according to the fading label. I got it at the Atlanta 
Botancial Gardens 'collectors sale'. They don't have any info (I called 
this morning), and I can't find anything in various references I've got 
here. It's a pretty thing....I have seen no signs of blooming, but at 
least I finally got it in the ground this noon.

Catharine/Atlanta, zone 7b, just in from a tour of the garden and I gotta 
admit that it looks purty guud. The falst baprisia is just starting to 
bloom; the siberian iris and peonies are popping; the roses are gorgeous; 
the foxgloves are gearing up. Now, if it would just stay like this....
