The Kivistik Collection:
Summer Bloomers, Super Winter Hardy, Very Easy!

The Kivistik Clematis are bred in Estonia, close to the Arctic Circle
and bloom on the current year's growth. They are rarely over 6 feet tall,
and die back to the ground each winter. Although we list these plants as
Full Prune, most years all you will have to do is remove the dead stems
at ground level. Most of them bloom in Maine from late June on,
as long as it doesn't get too hot.

Early Bloomers, Challenging

These are the plants that most people think of when we say, "Clematis".
They bloom in late May or early June and have large, flat flowers.
Some varieties will repeat bloom in late summer.
These varieties are slow to mature, less robust than other types
and sometimes can be a pain in the neck. If you've never grown clematis,
we recommend you start with plants from another section.

Many authorities recommend treating these varteties as "moderate prune" clematis.
However, we respectfully disagree: Please see our Pruning Primer
for more information.
