Clematis Sweet Autumn is a great asset to the garden at a time of year when pretty much everything else has stopped blooming. There are few vines that produce more flowers over the course of several weeks than a vigorous sweet autumn clematis.
This hardy climber is a rampant grower that can reach to 30 feet, but can easily be kept in check by cutting stems back to 12 inches in spring. It blooms on the current year’s growth, and unlike many Clematis, it will thrive and bloom well in partial shade. Plants are unlikely to bloom the first year, but expect them to begin blooming the second year.
As soon as warm weather arrives in late April and early May, you can almost watch the new shoots grow, as it’s not unusual for them to put on the better part of a foot of growth every couple of days!
Will tolerate some shade.
