Clematis ‘The President’ is a best-seller for good reason! Everyone loves its big, beautiful blooms, hardy disposition, and a climbing habit that is vigorous, yet not overactive. The large flowers feature a saturated purple hue that pops against the dark-green foliage. These gorgeous flowers bloom from June through September, enticing bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds to their spiky purple anthers at the center.

A must-have vine in Zones 4-9, clematis The President is perfect for growing up a tall trellis, fence, or artistic obelisk trellis. The non-stop summer bloom makes these a perfect focal point for entryways, decks, patios, and showcase gardens. This clematis variety can reach heights up to 12’, so it requires sturdy support, but is not such a vigorous grower that it overpowers its neighbors or trellises.

The President Clematis Care

A classic clematis in both looks and care, The President requires shaded roots and sun-drenched leaves to look its best. Pune, mulch and fertilize every spring. Plant in well-drained soil and avoid over-watering. Keep consistently moist, watering when the top 1-2” of soil is dry to the touch. Provide a trellis or support for it’s climbing growth habit.

The President clematis is in pruning group 2, which means it blooms on both new and old growth. Prune after the first flush of flowers have faded to encourage a new batch of blooms. Prune again in late winter or early spring to keep the plant tidy, healthy, and in flower.

The President Clematis Spacing

Clematis The President is a vigorous climber, so provide room for this vine to grow. Plant 2’ apart from other plants.

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.
