Craving a vacation? Why not put one in your own back yard? Sunset has those tropical hues you'd expect to find in a fruity blended drink at a beach bar. Those colors in perfect contrast are displayed on large, outward-facing, disc-shaped blooms, showing what the ideal color contrast and form can do for a flower. Large flowers take up room on the medium plant, and dress up your perennial border, on a trellis. Sunset also looks lovely on a pergola or arch, and as it climbs up above your garden beds, it'll bring that summer cocktail look to your landscape. What's surprising for a yellow pruning group Clematis is that Sunset blooms beautifully on old and new vines, so don't dismay if winter winds wreaked some havoc, there's plenty of beauty to come with this one. Clematis 'Sunset'
In our EZ Pruning Guide, this variety is in the YELLOW pruning category. It blooms best on old vine. Use caution when pruning to retain healthy stems from last season for best flowering.
