CLEMATIS: Always called the "Queen of Vines," nothing else makes the spectacular show of a clematis in full bloom. In almost all zones, these magnificent plants decorate mailboxes, trellises and porches with cascades of some of the most beautiful blooms in the flower kingdom, and they're not difficult to grow. There's no reason you can't add them to your landscape.
Clematis 'Etoile Violette' feature deep purple, 3″ blooms with an 'eye' of creamy stamens. They are borne in such profusion that they all but obscure the foliage, which explains why many Clematis aficionados rate this variety among the most free-flowering of all the hybrids. Peak bloom falls in July here, with rebloom continuing into September on vines that grow 8–12′. It's a knockout. Pruning group 3.
For beautiful colors, extravagance of blooms, and graceful habit, nothing compares with Clematis, the queen of the flowering vines. Whether used on posts or fences, clambering through shrubs and trees, or following wire frames in borders, they will enrich the landscape. Give them good soil, reasonable moisture, and shade at their roots.
