Plant of the Week: 'Viva Polonia' Clematis


'Viva Polonia' Clematis
Clematis for everyone!

Clematis are intimidating. They're kind of like Baked Alaska in that I really like them but figure that they are best left to people who know what they're doing. Until now.

Szczepan Marczynski has produced a fine array of easy to grow Clematis that even I am not afraid to grow. There's no complicated pruning regime with these plants. Just prune them back to 2-3' in spring and let them do their thing.
 
'Viva Polonia' gets its name for its resemblance to the Polish flag. It will grow in full sun or part shade and is hardy to USDA Zone 4. It gets 4-6' tall and wide.
