More Information

Description Sweet Summer Love clematis puts a twist on the classic sweet autumn clematis with radiant, cranberry-colored blooms. Thousands of blooms cover the vines and produce an alluring cherry vanilla fragrance. You're not the only one that will fall in love with the flowers! Butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds will linger around your vines and keep your garden buzzing. Clematis are known to be the queen of the vines. Watch it quickly cover fences, trellises, mailboxes, and more with a cascade of flowers. Fortunately, this plant only looks hard to care for! The only maintenance required is trimming in spring. This award-winning variety was developed by master clematis breeder Szczepan Marczynski of Poland. Details Botanical name: Clematis x 'Sweet Summer Love'

How To Grow Soil: Clematis prefer rich, organic soil (no heavy clay) that is slightly alkaline.

It has not grown much. I hope it lasts through the winter.

Love the Sweet Summer Love

Ordered 2, which arrived in early June in great shape. By mid-July they're already 6' up the trellis. No blooms yet, but they're young, and I'm hopeful we'll see blooms next season.
