Sugar-Sweet™ Blue Clematis

Clematis 'Scented Clem' PPAF

SKU
33563
As the bright, periwinkle-blue buds unfurl, a sweet, gardenia-like scent exudes from the thick, pale silvery-blue, star-shaped blooms of this classic climber. Bred for hardiness and wilt resistance, this mid-sized vine climbs beautifully up a trellis or obelisk and rambles nicely in shrub and tree borders, flowering from spring into midsummer. Deciduous.
