The brilliant flowers of the Sunset Clematis allow you to enjoy the vibrant shades of a sunset all day. This Clematis hybrid features 8-petaled flowers that measure 4 to 6 inches across and have a deep reddish-plum hue with purple accents. The petals have a satin finish and velvety texture. Soft yellow-hued anthers provide additional color. This Clematis is a free-flowering variety that blooms in May through June and again in September. Pointed green foliage fills in the areas between blooms.

The reaching vines of Clematis ‘Sunset’ need an arbor or trellis for support. Plant this vining perennial along a fence, shed, or structure the vines can climb. Use this flowering plant to create a privacy screen or focal point in the landscape. This plant is deer and rabbit resistant, so it is a good pick for rural areas with large animal populations. Grow the Sunset Clematis in zones 4 through 9. 

Sunset Clematis Care

Plant the Sunset Clematis in full sun to partial shade. The ideal planting site will expose the upper portion of the plant to full sun while shading the roots. The soil should have a high organic content and be moist but well drained. Clematis prefers damp but not overly wet conditions. Water weekly and apply a thick layer of mulch to retain moisture and further protect the roots.

Prune in late winter or early spring. Trim above a set of buds, removing old or leggy growth and creating a full and dense form.

Sunset Clematis Spacing

The Sunset Clematis reaches 6 to 10 feet tall and 1 to 2 feet wide. Space plants 1 to 2 feet apart when creating a continuous planting. One plant can grow in a 16-inch wide container.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
