Look at this! When it comes to flowering vines, you can’t get much more exciting than Clematis. The fragile, dead-looking vines spring to life in April and before you know it they’re bursting in colors ranging from white and pale pink to deep blues and reds.
We now have one called ‘Diamantina’ to add to our group of regulars. It’s a long bloomer with a purple double flower on the typical thin wiry flower stems. This Group 2 Clematis can be pruned early spring before new growth begins or after it flowers.
You can extend the Clematis season even further by using the Sweet Autumn Clematis (C. paniculata) – expect masses of fragrant flowers for weeks, typically September into October.
The best way to choose your favorite is to stop in and see them in bloom, or take a look in our catalog – you’ll find most of them under Nursery Stock on page 20.
