Bloomed their first season
Review by Alex
I planted three of these from Wayside. They bloomed the first season and climbed right up a fence in a pretty shady location.
Hardy, Prolific Clematis
Review by TMarie
I've had my heirloom clematis from Wayside for about 10 years. It's a foundation planting on the South side of the house in North Texas (Zone 7). This clematis delivers year after year with a mass of soft purple nodding bells in spring. It continues to bloom summer (lightly here because of 100+ temps) and then more blooms in the fall when it cools off some. No fragrance to mention. It's a very dense vine and needs to be on a very sturdy support. We have high wind and I have had to replace my supports twice because they bend completely over. I figured out the secret is to prune it all the way back to main trunks each January. Be patient. It did take a couple of years to establish enough for lots of blooms.

Review by Avid gardener, garden club member, work in our town gardens.
Love how quickly it grows in the spring. Heavy bloomer at first then lesser during the whole summer! I cut it back ever spring. Handles the cold NH weather.
