Nice, that is a huge set of blooms. I use to have some however mine were Iceburg and did not make it through last winters...

As can be seen, my 'Andromeda' has single petal form, whereas another photograph in the section is double, but with very similar colouring. The HMF Andromeda description says the variety is semi-double. My plant came from a reputable grower and appears to be the same as the other HMF photo (under contributor 'V'). Perhaps some clematis-savvy member can throw some light on this?

Many Clematis have semi-double or double blooms in the first flush in spring, but single flowers in autumn. This seems also to be the case with Andomeda. See also here:

Andromeda

Is your plant still Young? It is possible that it needs to establish itself before it produces semi-double blooms in the first flush.

My plant is about six years old and the photo taken today is of a bloom in the first flush of the season.

Great picture Margaret, what a lovely rose the growth reminds me a little of 'Paul Ricault', thanks for drawing my attention to 'Great Western', that's ANOTHER rose I'm going to have to buy!

Thank you. See the discussion - don't try it on its own roots.

Perfect. Vigorous enough to stand a chance of growing well in my garden.

It looks like a morden hybrid tea rose more than a portland damask.

It to me resembles the opening stages of a bloom of 'Mogador'. I several times wondered if my 'Mogador' was not a HT when I say the blooms first opening.

The petals are too dark and large for 'Rose du Roi' and the bloom is too high centred for a rose that should have no tea or China blood in it.

'Mogador' is also known as 'Rose du Roi a Fleurs Pourpres' because someone or other supposed it to be a sport, which it clearly is not, of 'Rose du Roi'. I wouldn't know where the gardener got his plant but there is one US nursery which is notorious for making just that kind of label switching, or label not reading, mistake.
