Customer Reviews

Star Performer Review by Karen | Zone: 5b
This was the 1st (of many) Clematis I purchased some years ago. To say it is a star performer is an understatement! It is part of type 3, which means trim low to the ground late winter/early spring. Did it grow too wildly this spring? Cut it back again - and watch it grow and bloom again! I don't believe you could find a better variety, especially if you are a new gardener! (Posted on 1/30/2012)
One of The Best Review by Mary | Zone: 8b
This is one of the best I have tried and I have tried many, many. I have it in a pot and it takes the direct HOT Texas sun from 1pm-6pm in summer with only a little fading. Its coloring is very unique. (Posted on 4/18/2011)
