(Clematis) BOURBON™ Clematis is an exciting compact clematis from Raymond J. Evison. Evison specifically hybridized this prized variety for patio containers. The compact growth reaches only 3-4 feet tall, which makes it a perfect fit for large patio pots. BOURBON™ is equally happy though when grown in the ground and allowed to scramble up a small trellis. The large 6 inch flowers are red with bright purple bars in the center of each petal. Flowers rebloom throughout the summer for an incredible display!

Very Pretty Flowers Review by Kay V | Zone: 7a
I have this in a pot on a small trellis with a hydrangea. It has taken a few years to really get going. It is perfect for a container planting and does produce very pretty flowers off and on in the spring and summer. (Posted on 6/4/2015)
Beautiful Review by Tracey | Zone: 5b
THIS PLANT IS BEAUTIFUL!! I purchased this clematis last year and was pleased to have a few flowers but I am blown away with what I have this year!! I am in zone 5 and spring came early for us this year. This plant absolutely flourished and is covered in the most gorgeous flowers. They are very large and the color is spectacular. I could not be more pleased with this plant. I strongly recommend this plant... it is absolutely amazing!!! You will not be disappointed. (Posted on 5/22/2010)
Breathtaking Review by Dianne | Zone: 7
Wow! This plant is amazing! Last year I purchased this Clematis from Garden Crossings because the flower was so colorful in the photograph. I planted it in a large clay pot with a trellis. It didn't do much but climb up the trellis; no blooming. This isn't uncommon for a newly transplanted perennial. I am in Zone 7b, so I left it in the container outside on my deck. It has emerged and is absolutely covered with the most breathtaking (and huge) blossoms! The color is phenomenal and the healthy foliage is the icing on the cake. Talk about a WOW factor plant AND rock hardy! If you are looking for an extremely vigorous, gorgeous plant, buy this one! (Posted on 4/14/2009)
