Avant Garde Clematis is a one-of-a-kind clematis! With double blooms that resemble a dahlia, the frilly pink inset flowers rest upon the deep maroon outer petals. Arriving in prolific amounts throughout the season, this is sure to become a garden favorite. It blooms on new wood, so pruning is best in late winter before new growth begins in the spring. Clematis require moist soils to grow well. In northern gardens they do best in full sun but prefer lightly shaded areas in southern gardens. Deer seldom bother clematis.
