With vigorous and steady growth, this outstanding performer blooms from late spring through fall. Clematis Mississippi River is a non-climbing clematis. Instead of climbing, this robust, sprawling clematis grows in a low, shrubby habit. Its blooms are larger and more outward-facing than nearly any other compact clematis, offering all the ease of a non-vining clematis with flowers more akin to a climbing variety. Mississippi River offers the flower style you love, and the ease of care that you want.

You'll be starstruck by the profusion of flowers on this relatively small plant, and by the beauty of those ethereal flowers. Mississippi River's dark pinnate leaves, ribbed sepals, and bright centers capture attention throughout the growing season, boasting contrasting royal blue sepals and unique, prominent yellow stamens. These clematis make stunning cut flowers, too. Snip stems with fattened buds for a vase, and watch them unfurl—these cut flowers will give you a vase life of over ten days.

This easy-to-grow clematis offers extended bloom time, and is a reblooming variety. Adequate sun and a middle-of-the-bed location are all this beauty needs to flourish in your garden. Mississippi River can be left in the winter for texture and interest, thanks to its thick growing habit. Fill in the middle of a border with this lush variety, or plant it at the base of another clematis for a full, lush look. Try pairing Mississippi River with another non-vining clematis for a mix of colors—East River provides a beautiful contrast. Clematis 'Zomisri' PPAF

In our EZ Pruning Guide, this variety is in the GREEN pruning category. These Clematis bloom on new vines that emerge from the ground each year or stems from near the bottom of older vines. Prune hard in the spring and as often as you like to encourage reblooming and keep the plant as tidy as you like.
