By pairing vines, stunning aerial liaisons can be arranged. We especially like deep purple Clematis 'Etoile Violette' with the blush pink, double-flowered Climbing Rose 'New Dawn'. The Clematis clambers up the Rose's thorny canes and obligingly places its flowers next to those of its host. When the two are at their peak in early July, the display is pure magic, and both can be counted on for repeat bloom through summer. 'New Dawn' is sweetly fragrant and disease-resistant, especially to black spot, the bane of many Roses. We offer one each of the Clematis and Rose.
Tip: We use Organic Gem® as a foliar feed on Rose bushes in our trial garden and find plants are healthier and perform better throughout the season.
