Clematis 'Sweet Summer Love'

Item #47984


So fragrant, so floriferous!

From the same breeding as Sweet Autumn Clematis!

This Clematis 'Sweet Summer Love' is a jewel-toned, fragrant wonder with an aroma that will saturate your yard. The flowers bloom with multiple wine tones like magenta and deep eggplant in mid- and late summer and return for one last burst of color in the fall.

Clematis 'Sweet Summer Love' may take some time to establish; keep the roots shaded and use mulch liberally, but allow full sun to shine on the tops of the plant to help it take off. Once mature, the Clematis 'Sweet Summer Love' grows to about 10 to 15 feet long and 6 to 10 feet wide, with more than 2,000 blooms a season. This plant spells abundance.

This Proven Winners® ColorChoice® plant was selected for its incomparable splendor and its productive, plentiful flowers. This plant grows well once established and is easy to take care of. Just cut it back to about 2 feet tall every winter or in early spring to ensure maximum flowering. Pruning will improve the plant over the years.
