Sweet Autumn Clematis

$39.99

Sweet autumn clematis (Clematis terniflora) is a perennial flowering deciduous vine that produces sweetly fragrant flowers in the late summer and early fall. This twining vine has leathery, shiny, dark green leaves. The flowers are small, white, numerous, and fragrant. When covering wood fences or similar structures, a sweet autumn clematis in bloom gives the appearance of fleece. The spent flowers are replaced by fuzzy seed heads that are also attractive. But be warned: the aggressive growth of sweet autumn clematis means it's considered invasive in many eastern parts of the United States.

3 Gallon Size Liners are available for in store purchases only; no shipments online.

Care

Zones 5 - 11. Full sun to partial shade in moist, well drained soil. Water when soil is 25% dry.

Growth Habit

It can grow to 30 feet, though 15 feet is a more typical mature size. It has a fast growth rate, gaining a few feet in length each year. 

Toxicity

This plant is toxic to humans and pets.
