Rouge Cardinal Clematis

Crimson Free-Flowering Beauty

True to its name, this free-flowering clematis sends out tons of blooms throughout the growing season, and then again later in the year. That's right! Large, 4-6", single, crimson-red flowers with blunt, recurving sepals and creamy, contrasting anthers emerge in midsummer on new growth. Then, the fall season brings another flush of blooms for months of beauty and color in the garden. Vines grow to over 10' long and make a great privacy screen. Trained to an arbor, pergola or fenceline, they look amazing when in full flower. Can also be used as a unique (and colorful) ground cover plant. Plus, the bright red color and big blooms lure beneficial pollinators like butterflies, hummingbirds and bees to the landscape, which is great for your entire garden site. Zones 4-8.
