Hardiness is built into our new series of clematis additions from the Kivistik family. These world-renowned Estonian growers breed clematis to tolerate harsh Baltic winters. The result? Incredibly hardy clems that bloom early, with gorgeous flowers welcoming you to the season of beauty ahead.

Ilka produces a profusion of cheerful flowers in early spring. These large blooms come in a pale bluish lilac, with contrast red stamens. Nuance develops on the mid-rib of each sepal as the flower matures, and that hint of color is sure to draw the eye and a smile. You'll never be bored with these large flowers, blooming outward in a classic shape. Ilka is perfect for mid- or back-of-border planting, and kicks off the start of your clematis blooming season beautifully. Clematis Ilka
