I have always thought that the picture that was supplied to us when we first started selling ‘Bourbon’ made it look like an amazing Clematis. The other day when I was walking through the greenhouses I found one in bloom. This was the first time that I had actually seen the real deal, and I am very impressed by the beautiful coloration of this bloom. The blooms are just as large as the description says. I think I may need to find a new home for a “Bourbon” Clematis this year! -Heidi
(Clematis) Bourbon™ Clematis is an exciting new compact clematis from Raymond J. Evison. Evison specifically hybridized this prized variety for patio containers. The compact growth reaches only 3-4 feet tall, which makes it a perfect fit for large patio pots. Bourbon™ is equally happy though when grown in the ground and allowed to scramble up a small trellis. The large 6 inch flowers are red with bright purple bars in the center of each petal. Flowers rebloom throughout the summer for an incredible display!
