This stunning clematis is covered with hundreds, maybe thousands of flowers from summer into fall. It produces lovely flowers that start raspberry red, change to purple and then mature to violet in color. All three colors will appear simultaneously giving the appearance that one plant is three plants. The flowers have an alluring cherry vanilla scent. Be sure to plant Sweet Summer Love Clematis Vine near windows in your home that you frequently open or adjacent to a porch, patio or deck where you spend time outdoors to be able to enjoy the lovely scent.
Clematis vines love to climb so grow this plant on a sturdy trellis, arbor, obelisk, mailbox post or fence. It can be grown in a container with a trellis but will need to be cut back if it outgrows the trellis. The four-petaled 2-inch flowers stand out against its dark green leaves.
