Happy Jack Purple

For the Clematis lovers, Happy Jack is easy to grow and produces large, velvety purple flowers that cascade all over the plant. It's long blooming from mid-summer to fall, flowers on new wood and old wood as well. Prune in the spring and fertilize for the season.

Remember "Feet in the Shade, Head in the Sun" will keep your clematis growing happily. A good layer of mulch or surrounding companion plants to shade the root system will keep its feet cool and the body of growth will bask in sunny glory. It just needs a sturdy structure to climb on and you are good to go.
