The Rogerson Clematis Collection was formed to preserve historic clematis as well as the newest. The collection includes plants that are unique or exceptionally rare. At approximately 500 taxa and just under 900 individual plants, it is one of the largest assemblage of clematis in the Western Hemisphere. The mission of FRCC is to promote and advance the joy of growing the genus clematis through education and the preservation of the Rogerson Clematis Collection.
