Clematis florida . . . (forms)
is a semi-evergreen species which sometimes is flowering throughout the winter with us as well as flowering Spring and Autumn and often seems to be dormant or semidormant during mid-summer (often believed dead) this makes them a bit fickle and we find them one of the more difficult plants to survive (we are still learning) Therefore we will only sell this species as a two year plant "Premium Size" We Do NOT replace this species if lost! . .
