SWEET SUMMER LOVE CLEMATIS
If you’ve ever wished for a fragrant, brightly colored, longer blooming version of Sweet Autumn clematis, this is the plant for you. First flush begins in July as deep red blooms emerge, then turn to purple-red and mature to violet. Flowers have a wonderful cherry-vanilla fragrance and attract hummingbirds and butterflies. Sturdy stems can be pruned to about knee height in late winter/early spring as flowers appear on new growth. Keep roots cool and tops in full sun for best flowering.
