Flowers and Fragrance You’ll Love this Summer!

Sweet Summer Love Clematis is a plant you’re sure to love this summer for its sweet scent and gorgeous flowers.  While other clematis varieties have fragile stems, Sweet Summer Love is strong.  Where some clematis flowers are fleeting, Sweet Summer Love’s fabulous blossoms are long-blooming.  Many clematis have beautiful blooms with no scent, but Sweet Summer Love  Clematis provides both.  It even blooms earlier than many clematis varieties.  Quite simply, Sweet Summer Love is a hardy and prolific clematis that you can count on for a tremendous show every year!

The flowers of Sweet Summer Love emerge in July in shades of deep red, maturing to red-tinted purple.  The thousands of starry blooms, together on the same vine, create a multi-toned effect of reds and purples highlighted by the frilly white stamen centers.  The blooms last into mid-September for a long-lasting display that is a spectacular show to be sure!

Your Sweet Summer Love Clematis is a deciduous, ornamental vine that will climb up to 12 feet tall with a spread of up to 6 feet. It’s adaptive to a variety of soils, cold and heat tolerant and disease resistant.  Plant one by your front door, along a fence or against a trellis where it can realize its full height and beauty…and where you can enjoy its sweet scent and brilliant color.

For a fast growing vine that blooms sooner and longer than most, and features both exceptional flowers and fragrance, look no further than Sweet Summer Love Clematis.
