A seemingly non-stop display of flowers from early summer to early fall makes Pink Mink®Clematis a standout. This is an award winning Clematis that produces loads of dark fuchsia pink flowers edged in a lighter pink. Developed for its outstanding flower power by famed Clematis breeder Szczepan Marczynski, Pink Mink®Clematis is as vigorous and easy to grow as it is free flowering. Let it spill over a fence or trellis to add a colorful vertical accent to your garden or landscape. Masses of 3-4” candy pink blooms with vivid magenta stripes down the center and softly ruffled edges cover vigorous vines throughout the season for a striking display of vertical color. This repeat bloomer produces a full flush of flowers in early summer lasting for weeks, followed by repeat blooms until early fall. Use on a trellis, in borders, climbing over shrubs, and the flowers are great for cutting.
