Bijou™ Clematis ‘Evipo 030’

Clematis 'Bijou'

I know I have featured ClematisBijou‘ in the past but this cute little Queen of the Vines just simply impresses me. I just love the compact growing habit reaching only 1 foot tall. The free flowering vine blooms early summer and frequently again in the fall. Use ‘Bijou‘ Clematis as a ground cover or plant in a combination planter. Think outside the box of using clematis as a vertical interest and take it to the ground level.

Anna-Louise™ Clematis

Clematis 'Anna Louise'

(Clematis) This is the first year we have carried Clematis ‘Anna Louise‘. I love the contrast of purple and magenta on each petal. Standing 8-10 foot with its large 5-6″ vibrant flowers ‘Anna Louise‘ is a stand out. The white anthers contrast beautifully with the purple red flower. Blooming early summer and early fall this reblooming clematis is sure to please.

Aquilegia x caerulea ‘Origami Red & White’

(Columbine) Aquilegia 'Origami Red & White'

The colors of spring, besides Lupine, Columbines has go to be my second favorite spring blooming flower. It does not matter which Aquilegia variety it is they are all a wonderful addition to spring. Aquilegia ‘Origami Red & White’ is a wonderful bloomer with color lasting up to 12 weeks. When the plant is done blooming you can let the seed pods dry up and then sprinkle seeds all around. I will warm you have go to love Columbine if you choose to doe this because you will have them everywhere. So pick a great location and spread the seeds in love. ‘Origami Red & White’ is a great plant choice when looking to bring in natures added attractions of butterflies and hummingbirds. But don’t worry the unwanted guests of deer and rabbit will usually leave this plant alone.

Bourbon™ Clematis ‘Evipo 018’

Clematis 'Bourbon'

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!
