Clematis are 18.99

Super Early and Super Easy!

These clematis are GREAT choices for beginners:
They start the clematis season with very early blooms, usually with the lilacs.
They have bell shaped, nodding flowers, followed by handsome seed heads.
All are very winter hardy - our customers in Alaska love them!
We've never (knock on wood!) had diseases on these varieties.
No Pruning Needed!

Clematis that don't climb! Very Easy!

These clematis don't climb; they will sprawl unless provided with support.
Most grow 3 to 4 feet tall and many have the downward facing bell shaped flowers.
Some varieties are lightly fragrant, especially when planted in full sun.
Lots of them are good choices for growing in containers.
They are virtually wilt free, although they are sometimes prone to powdery mildew.

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.

For more information, see our Kivistik Clematis page.

Early Bloomers, Not Recommended for Beginners

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.
