Plant Features

Westerplatte Clematis Plants command attention in the garden with large, red blooms that fold slightly back, making these flowers appear even bigger. Use this compact vine to climb a trellis or tree, or weave in between other plantings for an added floral effect. Named in honor of a brigade of brave polish soldiers, it has come to symbolize soldiers' heroism. In northern gardens, it will do best in full sun but prefer lightly shaded areas in southern gardens. Only prune for shaping purposes.
