These large blooms with big, eye-catching stripes last a long time in the landscape, especially for setting the scene in a sunny cottage garden. Cotton Candy Clematis grows quickly, so you'll have a nice container feature fast. We suggest training this flower up a trellis and letting it show off its gorgeous flowers at eye-level. A Clematis from the Vancouver series, it's a collector's favorite and often difficult to find in the US. It's bred to be free flowering, but the modern, compact habit makes it possible to feature it in container gardening. Clematis 'Cotton Candy'
