Product Description

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. Majestic, deep ruby-red summer flowers appearing almost black on opening, with golden-yellow centres and mid-green leaves. This compact, large-flowered clematis is perfect for growing in a container in partial shade. While it takes some time to establish the sight of the crushed velvet-like petals unfurling is well worth the wait. The seed heads are pretty, too, with their silvery-gray featherlike styles. There is an old saying with Clematis; "Tops in the sun and feet in the shade." In other words the vine blooms best in the sun and benefits from a cluster of small plants, planted around the base of the plant. Many people simply plant a ground cover like ivy, myrtle, or pachysandra around the plant to shade the base. Clematis does best in fertile, humus rich, well-drained soil. Mulch well with composted manure or compost. Feed once a month with a well balanced fertilizer during the growing season.

    Years ago I had a purple clematis. I wanted a red one this time. I searched the nurseries/greenhouses all over my area, but no one had any. I found Hirt online. They were located in my home state, so my live vine shouldn't be in the mail too long. I was right! My Vine arrived quickly and was in great shape. I planted it immediately and it is doing great. Should be established and blooming well by next year!
