Sweet Autumn Clematis
Clematis paniculata ‘Sweet Autumn’
8-10 feet tall
Full to Part Sun
Vigorous climber with abundant small white, sweetly scented blooms. Blooms from late summer to fall when most other clematis are done. Flowers attract pollinators. Songbirds use the vine as a nesting site. This plant may be less frequently damaged by deer than other clematis species. Plant to grow up a fence trellis or arbor. Remember, clematis like their “face” (green, viny portion and flowers) in the sun and their “feet” (roots) in the shade. While this beautifully ornate plant is wonderful for pollinators and songbirds, please note it can be poisonous to horses, dogs, and cats.
