FEATURES

Star power for your garden and landscape!

'Viva Polonia' is a new, easy-to-grow clematis with large red flowers, each graced with a white star in the center. This long-blooming plant starts its display in early summer, and continues to produce new wood blooms through mid-summer. It's perfect for covering trellises, railings, posts, arbors, pergolas, fences - anything that needs beautifying.

Top reasons to grow 'Viva Polonia' clematis:

- Easy care - just cut back to about 18"/45 cm each spring, when the new growth begins to emerge on the stems.

- Deep pink-red blooms have a showy white star in their center.

- Versatile vine adds color to vertical structures.

Maintenance Notes: 

"Feet in the shade, head in the sun" - that's the old saying to remember for success with clematis. Plant this vine where the leaves get plenty of sunshine while the roots enjoy cool shade. Mulch is one way to do this; you can also plant a clematis where the roots are shaded by a low-growing, evergreen shrub.

'Viva Polonia' clematis blooms on both old wood and new wood. To get the best performance and best appearance, cut it back to about 3' (.9 m) each early spring.

Fun Facts: 

Developed by Polish breeder Szczepan Marczynski, 'Viva Polonia' gets its name because it shares the colors of the flag of Poland.
