The most vigorous varieties in the Vancouver series supply continued and dramatic beauty from late spring into fall. With intricate and iridescent colors, they'll make shining patio container features. It's exciting to be able to offer these three flower powerhouses. Vancouver Clematis are prized among connoisseurs as the perfect blend of modern and classic. However, you'll rarely find more than one or two being offered at a time.

The modern, compact habits makes it possible to feature these in container gardening. Includes Clematis 'Starry Night', 'Sea Breeze', 'Plum Gorgeous'
