When you hang the name of a Royal Horticultural Society garden on a new introduction, it had better be good. Clematis Rosemoor™ is better than good. It comes from Raymond Evison's superb breeding program on the Isle of Guernsey. Its showy 5″ purplish red blooms appear on old and new wood, which means flowering is almost nonstop from early summer to fall. Pruning group 2. Gardini™ Evipo002(N) PP 15,797
For beautiful colors, extravagance of blooms, and graceful habit, nothing compares with Clematis, the queen of flowering vines. These plants enrich a landscape whether twining on posts and fences, clambering through shrubs and trees, or following a wire frame in a border. Give them good soil, reasonable moisture, and shade at their roots.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.
WHEN WE SHIP
We ship our bulbs and plants at the right time for planting in your area, except as noted, with orders dispatched on a first-come, first-served basis by climate zone. Estimated dates for shipping are indicated in the Shipping Details box for each item. Please refer to the Shipping Details box to determine the earliest shipping time. Unless you specify otherwise, fertilizers, tools, and other non-plant items are shipped with your plants or bulbs. Please supply a street address for delivery. Kindly contact us with two weeks notice, if you'll be away at expected time of delivery.

Gardener Jean from Spokane, WA.
I have had this clematis for 4 years and it never fails to suprise me. I usually train the vines to climb the trellis in certain directions but this year, I just let it go and it's beautiful. I live in a zone 5 and have never had an issue with this plant.
Master Gardener Wannabe from Indianapolis, IN
We bought this clematis this spring and even in the midst of our severe drought it has done very well with occasional watering in our partly sunny cutting garden. But what we love most about this plant is the color of the bloom. WFF's picture doesn't do it justice. It's the deepest reddish purple that we've ever seen and we just absolutely love it. Getting ready to buy more.
Theresa from Lynbrook, NY
I don't even really like clematis but I was drawn in by the color of this flower. Deep, rich, blood red. I was afraid the catalog photo was touched up but, indeed, the catalog does not do it justice. Planted Dec 2012, I didn't think the tiny plant would survive the winter. It is climbing up the trellis holding my mailbox and has produced 3 flowers thusfar. It is really a beauty.
MJ from Lakeville, Maine
I have had this wonderful clematis for four years. It is beautiful every year. In Maine the harsh winters and short growing season can be daunting. Rossmoor blooms profusely starting in July through the beginning of August.
The Happy Gardener from Princeton, NJ
Planted 3 plants last fall in our flower garden which also includes your Strawberry Hydrangeas. Clematis started to break ground in early May. This morning (6/5) our first bloom opened up. We live in area 6. The color is gorgeous...very deep red. Looking forward to more blooms.

This very diverse group of lovely, ornamental vines will entice you to garden on the vertical plane. There's a Clematis for virtually every situation: grow the shorter and non-climbing types through shrub Roses and small trees and cover an arbor or a trellis with the taller varieties. The long flowering season begins with the compact alpinas and macropetalas in early spring, progresses through early summer with the large-flowered hybrids, continues through late summer with the boisterous texensis and viticella varieties, and concludes with the exuberant and infallible Clematis paniculata that will literally cover an unsightly structure or arbor in one season.
Fertilizer/Soil and pH:
Clematis are divided into pruning groups as follows:
Group I plants bloom on old wood and require no pruning except to control size, in which case prune lightly after flowering back to a pair of healthy buds. Group I varieties include Clematis alpina 'Stolwijk Gold' and Clematis montana 'Mayleen.'
Group II plants bloom first on old wood and then again on new; prune lightly in early spring to shape and remove weak growth and then prune after bloom if desired.
Group II varieties include:
Group III plants all flower on new growth and can be cut back to 12″ in early spring. This group is ideal for growing through shrubs as all old growth is removed annually.
Group III varieties include:
