Will the Clemantis survive the winters in zone 5b in a outside planter trellise 1’high x1’deepx2’long?

Asked by Bubbles September 12, 2020
1
Answer

Hello Bubbles, Thank you for reaching out to us. Our Summer Love Clematis has a mature growth of 10-15 feet tall and 6-10 feet wide. So it will eventually need to be transplanted into the ground. If your Summer Love Clematis is in a container, you should over winter it in a shed, garage, or other cool spot that will not be exposed to frost/freezing temperatures. Also, it would benefit from being covered in a protective material such as burlap. If your pot should freeze and break, the roots will be exposed to frost and the plant will not survive. I hope this helps! If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach out to us at 734-654-7485 or helpdesk@provenwinnersdirect.com. Kind regards, Tabatha

I live in New York where we experience all four seasons and very cold winter. This clematis stays green throughout the summer and dries down during the winter. I imagine that if our summer lasted longer the plant would stay green all year.

I purchased my Sweet Summer Clematis this Spring. It is currently in a large container with a tre...

Hello Belle, although there can be several reasons why a plant is not blooming; Right now, in your plant's first stage of life, it is really normal. This is because your plant is sending all its energy into making a healthy root system for its new home, which will allow it to bloom fuller next year. As far as the bunnies go, animals, in general, we eat just about anything if they are hungry enough. But there are many ways online listing ways on how to fortify your plants from the bunnies.I hope this information helps. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact us on our hotline (734) 654-7485. We are here to guarantee that you have the best customer experience. Happy planting, Jade

Does the sweet summer clematis attract pollinators?

Asked by Andy April 27, 2019

Answers

Hi Andy, Sweet Summer Love is not classified as a pollinator attracting shrub, however it does has fragrant blooms so it could. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact us on our hotline (734) 654-7485 or helpdesk@provenwinnersdirect.com. Best regards, Amanda

Will they climb walls?

Asked by VICKIE April 13, 2019

Answers

The first answer is inadequate. Clematis climbs walls by using its curly tendrils, NOT by suckers as does ivy. You'll need to provide something like a trellis for clematis vines to curl around.

when is the best time to plant this plant

Asked by Tom February 3, 2019

Answer

Hi Tom, When night temperatures are consistently above freezing it is safe to plant shrubs. Be sure to plant where it will receive 4-8 hours of sunlight per day. If you have any other questions, feel free to call our hotline at (734) 654-7485. Best regards, Amanda

Hi, I live in zone 5b in MA. if I planted in pot in the summer do I need to transplant it in the ground before winter?

Asked by Phoebe February 25, 2018
1
Answer

Hi Phoebe, There are a couple of options for overwintering potted shrubs. You can store the pot in an unheated garage for the winter, keeping the soil moist. You can transplant the plant into the ground in the fall, or you can dig a hole in your garden and place the pot with the plant inside of it, into the hole, fill it in with soil, and dig it back up in the spring. If you have any other questions, fell free to call our hotline (734) 654-7458. Best regards, Amanda.

When is best time to plant in Florida?

Asked by Marlene August 9, 2017
1
Answer

Hi Marlene, As a general rule of thumb, the best time to plant is in the spring or fall because the milder temperatures are easier on the plants (and you!) while planting. For a more specific date, it will depend on what region of Florida you are in and your hardiness zone. If you have any questions, please call our hotline (734) 654- 7485. Best regards, Fallon

Asked by pam April 24, 2017

Answer

Hi pam, Our plants are grown from cuttings in temperature, humidity, and light controlled greenhouses for months before they are transplanted into larger containers and grown over the course of months, if not years, before they reach the high quality that we ship. If you have any additional questions, feel free to give us a call at (734) 654-7485. Thanks, Hailee

Purchased sadly without reading reviews, totally felt mislead. This tiny wilted,dry,poorly packed plant arrived with four inches of root bound circling the pot (no joke). I will not purchase Proven Winner from this grower. Upon arrival pictures were sent and calls made. All unproductive and followed by an even more useless email response. Purchasers BEWARE. Received much better quality even in the heat from Southern Living.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
This plant arrived in very healthy condition. It had several branches near the root so it could be planted slighted below ground to have more likelihood of surviving if one of the branches gets damaged. I was surprised that this was the first clematis I've had that seemed to be eaten by rabbits and I'm not sure if this is because of this particular plant or the location. I put some fencing around it until it grows bigger and it is continuing to thrive after six weeks/ There are no flowers so far but this might be because of the original size of the plant, since the proven winners clematis that I got in a 1 gallon container has already been blooming.

Plant arrived scruny with weak main branch. Very droopy. Questionable on whether it will live. Was looking forward to having a healthy proven winner of this beautiful clematis. The plant that arrived was very disappointing.
