Lovers of Sweet Autumn Clematis will appreciate this non-invasive alternative. Summer Snow is sterile and does not set, so it doesn't spread invasively or produce vexing volunteer seedlings across the landscape. The individual flowers, which bloom en masse, are slightly larger than Sweet Autumn, and bloom longer. Summer Snow is a superior performer and better-behaved as well.
Bred in Russia from the native species Clematis vitalba and Clematis potanini, Clematis Summer Snow is an overlooked addition to the landscape to define the garden. Allow Summer Snow to grow unattended if the space is ample, and it will create a blanket-like display. Clematis 'Summer Snow'
In our EZ Pruning Guide, this variety is in the GREEN pruning category. These Clematis bloom on new vines that emerge from the ground each year or stems from near the bottom of older vines. Prune hard in the spring and as often as you like to encourage reblooming and keep the plant as tidy as you like.
