Green Thumb Needed

Any "educated" guesses?

I am trying to identify this flower. Those who know me know I am absolutely NO green thumb! I can't stress that enough. I am working on a project and need to know what kind of flower this is. I snapped this in London at the start of summer and it is one of my favorite images....and yes John...I took the photo off center! :)

Thanks for all your help!

UPDATE
Thanks Julie for figuring it out! It is the Star of India or Clematis flower.

I think it may be a "star of India" clematis...

But someone else may know better?

Anna said...

OK, that is awesome. I think that you may be right! :) It was supposed to take longer than that!

Thanks!

CG said...

Anna, I hope someone else can check. A lot of these plants look very similar and I'm no expert!!

Anna said...

Please keep checking and let me know if ya'll find out anything different!

JAM said...

Glad someone could help you. I had no idea myself.

Lovely shot though. I like the off-centered look. I don't even think of it when I'm out shooting. It's like Moi's tilting photos. I like that too, but never think to try it. I guess I'm dye-in-the-wool traditional. It's hard to break out of that thinking.

Yes, it is a clematis. Lovely.

Mike said...

Yes it is a clematis and I think the variety is Jackamani or something similar to that.

Nice shot, off center as it is! :)

I like the flower, off-center and all. I don't have a particularly green thumb either, and I'm glad to learn what it is.

Whew, so glad someone knew what it was. I didn't have a clue. Mums I know, purple thingys..no.
How's your son doing? I hope things are going smoothly.

Anna I am so sorry it has been so long since I visited, I have so much catching up to do. Beautiful whimsical shots of your daughter's dress and so sorry about the broken clavical, ouch.

You are always in my thoughts. I hope to catch up this winter. (((Hugs)))

Hi anna,

My first visit, what a nice blog. Is the flower you needed identified? If you need any other 'flower' help let me know via the email link in my profile . I would be happy to try and help.

Thanks for visiting my site.

I can totally relate. I love taking floral/plant photos--but then people ask "Oh what is that?" and I have no answer...

Kyle said...

I am definately no botanist, but I do know that that is one great picture!

Mark said...

I'd be curious to see a size comparison. How small/large is that flower?

Anna said...

New project in which you need to know the name of a plant??? Do tell!!!

Ash said...

Beautiful image. And I love that its placed off center!
