Fragrant Blooms for Months!

Thousands of richly colored stars every year!

Feel free to wish upon the star-like blossoms of Clematis 'Sweet Summer Love', a new Clematis from Polish breeder Szczepan Marczynski. Where else will you see deep, glowing reds bleeding into sangria and royal purple? Freely borne and fragrant, Clematis 'Sweet Summer Love' lives up to its name by forming more than 2,000 blooms from midsummer all the way through autumn. When late winter and early spring roll around, prune the climber to knee height so it can return denser and livelier than ever! Clematis establish slowly, but when they take off, they can grow 8-12 feet wide?and they only keep improving as the years pass. When you plant Clematis 'Sweet Summer Love', ensure that its aboveground growth is in the sun and its roots are in the shade. Surround it with mulch to keep the soil moist. Soon you'll be experiencing the sweet scents and romantic purples of this Proven Winners® ColorChoice® beauty! Zones 4 to 9.

Worth the wait

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I planted SSL and couldn't make up my mind about it's location. I moved it twice in it's first season. The next spring I moved it to it's permanent home and it has grown bigger ever since. At four years old it is 12 ft. tall and is blooming like crazy on a north wall. I hardly notice the scent unless I'm on a ladder training it.
