Clematis ‘Prairie Travelers’ Joy’


USDA Zone: 1-9

Plant number: 1.157.400

This hardy, Canadian selection of Clematis looks nothing like the large-flowered hybrids that often come to mind. A vigorous and hardy plant, it can be grown as a climbing vine or spreading groundcover. Vines produce sprays of starry white flowers in summer, followed by fluffy white seed heads. Trailing stems will root into the ground and form new plants, making it a fast cover for steep banks and slopes. Cut back hard every 2 to 3 years, in early spring. Bred by Dr. Frank Skinner, in northern Manitoba. Tolerates hot, dry sites, and poor soil conditions. Easy.
