The Quintessential Climber

Boulevard Clematis

No garden is complete without the brilliant blooms and vining habit of clematis! This "queen of the climbers" creates a vertical element in the garden and is often seen lacing through fences, twining up and over mailboxes and garnishing trellises and arbors. Boulevard’s compact and bushy habit make it ideal for growing in containers as well as up against pergolas, trees and walls. A long-lived, evergreen perennial, Boulevard typically blooms from early spring until late summer and grows best in full sun and moist, well-drained soil. This easy-to-grow, climbing vine is cherished for its incredible flower power and is a perfect choice for both the seasoned or beginner gardener. Clematis is sure to dazzle year after year.
