Fall Blooming Type 3
Vibrant shades of lush cranberry/violet in hundreds of starry blossoms. Imagine! A Sweet Autumn Clematis in new colors and blooming earlier and longer. Flowers emerge deep red, turn to purple red, and then mature to violet. A spectacular fall show. Proven Winners® selections are trialed and tested to be colorful, long blooming, carefree and easy to grow. This Sweet Autumn Clematis is a much more restrained variety with low seed set and does not produce rampant unwanted seedlings.

Clematis General Information

Clematis are prized for their incredible flowers, most as large as your hand. "Queen of the Climbers" will train onto trellises, fences or arch over doorways. Stunning when used alone or when several colors are mixed. Grower's tip: Truest colors require full sun, as any shade will introduce purple tones. Flower color and bloom size may vary while the plant is establishing. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Clematis Plant Care

Pruning Type 3 - This group blooms later and from new growth. These should be pruned in February or March as new leaf buds begin to show low on the plant. Also remove all dead material above the buds and clean out any old or mildewed foliage at this time. Not as aggressive as Sweet Autumn. Cutting back to knee height in late winter or early spring will ensure a more lush, full plant than the previous year. If intertwining Clematis, pruning will be easier if you select varieties with the same pruning type. Want to sort by pruning type?
