Wouldn't it be great if Sweet Autumn clematis flowered sooner and longer and came in other colors? Now it does! 'Sweet Summer Love' gives you everything you want: the flowers, the fragrance, the ease of growth and cranberry-violet blooms that start over a month earlier than others - starting in July in the midwest and northeast, and lasting until mid-September.  This breakthrough vine is from award-winning clematis breeder Szczepan Marczyski of Poland. It will add lots of drama to gardens when trained up a trellis or other support.
