The red niobe blooms are striking against their delicate yellow center. They’re arguably one of the most superior Clematis because of the free blooming flowers growing in abundance throughout the summer on a compact vine. It’s ideal in container, on pillars, or around mailboxes.

Clematis vines are among the most attractive flowering vines! Nicknamed ‘The Queen of Vines,’ Clematis vines are easy to grow with a long season of bloom. These deer resistant vines prefer sunny locations and cool soil. They love support while they grow, so smaller growing clematis do great on poles and larger growing ones are great on arbors. Most varieties fall somewhere in the middle, doing very well along a trellis or fence!
