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'

Not impressed

Took very long to arrive summer 2021. Small plants gave us 2-3 blooms and now have yet to appear this year. Am convinced that mail order plants are a huge risk. Best to get to a garden center and select your plant yourself.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We're sorry to hear that your plants took longer to arrive than anticipated. As noted on our website, all of our plants are shipped as young plants with well established root systems. Perhaps you're familiar with the old saying about plants: first year sleep, second year creep, third year leap. This applies to plants in the garden center as well as plants you purchase online. They generally spend their first year growing roots in their new home, the second year they have more energy to put into growth, and the third year, they are growing and flowering vigorously. With proper care, you will see growth on your new plants. Happy Gardening!

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.
