As I explained in my article titled, “Are Clematis Really Blue?”, Clematis ‘H. F. Young’ is often depicted (erroneously in my opinion) as having the same color as a piece of Wedgwood Blue Jasperware. So, here’s a picture from my book of Clematis ‘H. F. Young’ with a piece of Wedgwood Blue Jasperware that illustrates my point about the lack of pale-blue coloring. After seeing this photo I hope you too will agree that it is certainly inaccurate to depict this clematis’ coloring as Wedgwood Blue. Wouldn’t you say it is a safer bet to call the shading Clematis ‘H. F. Young’ periwinkle as I suggested previously?
FYI: Jasperware is a type of pottery that was first introduced by Josiah Wedgwood, so the correct spelling is Wedgwood (note that there is no letter E between the g and the w).
