This has been the best Clematis plant I have ever owned. It has survived a hurricane and being crushed by a grill. The blooms are the largest I have ever seen on any variety as well. The best part is I got it off the half dead sale rack at Lowes for $3.00! Paired it with some of the leaves from my daylily which is just about to bloom as well. Let me know what you think, it's great to get Comments, Likes, and Shares.
