Charming and floriferous, clematis add beauty to gardens and landscapes. These delicate-looking vines create elegant vertical displays as they climb up fences, trellises, lampposts, mailboxes, and even other shrubs and plants. It's no wonder they're a favorite among gardeners.
Thanks to modern breeding efforts, today's clematis are available in many more varieties. Gardeners can choose from clematis with huge flowers, double blooms, tulip-shaped blossoms—and even fragrance. And bloom times can range from late spring into early fall.
Our Spring Hill garden team selected three outstanding varieties that will provide an entire season of blooms. The All Summer Clematis Collection really showcases the spectacular features clematis have to offer. Each variety was selected for its bloom time and outstanding flowers.
The collection includes one each of Blushing Bridesmaid™, an early-blooming clematis with huge, deep pink double flowers; Diamond Ball, which produces fully-double palest blue to white flowers; and Innocent Blush, which blooms mid-season and reliably repeats bloom as late as September.
The clematis in the All Summer Clematis Collection will add elegance and color to your garden. All are guaranteed to perform beautifully. Just plant in a sunny location, mulch and water, and you'll be on your way to having reliable and romantic vining color all summer. Collection includes one each of: Clematis cv. 'Kaiser' PBR (Blushing Bridesmaid), Clematis 'Diamond Ball' PBR, Clematis 'Innocent Blush' PBR
