Sugar-sweet blooms with big, eye-catching stripes last a long time in the landscape. The charming flowers are effective in setting the scene in a whimsical woodland or cottage garden. It grows quickly, so you'll have a nice patio pot feature fast. We suggest training Cotton Candy up a trellis or tuteur and letting it show off these gorgeous flowers at eye-level. This is a Vancouver clematis. Collectors keep an eye out for this series, as they're difficult to find in the USA. They are bred from heritage genetics—classic styles, shapes and colors. However, as a new generation, they exhibit stronger disease resistance, free flowering and extraordinary garden performances. The modern, compact habits make it possible to feature them in container gardening. Clematis 'Cotton Candy'
