Allow Clematis Poet to put your garden in perfect harmony with its purple-blue, double-blooming flowers. Poet features large flowers on a medium plant, and has quickly earned a spot among our favorite later large-flowering Clematis. One reason is its rare form in combination with "green prune" needs. You won't find another fully-double Clematis that blooms on new vines –but Poet is living proof that Clematis can be both simple to grow and breathtaking to observe.

Gorgeous flowers open wide, with sepals stacked atop each other. Periwinkle blue tones pair beautifully with bright, light-colored centers--there aren't enough words to describe the unique elegance of this Clematis. Try pairing Poet with Clematis Maria Curie Slodowski, contrasting beautifully with Maria's puffy, white flowers. Poet is free blooming, and blooms more quickly than most double Clematis. The new genetics behind this plant are truly on track to change the game of Clematis gardening. In Europe, where this plant is sold as Clematis 'Floral Dance,' it's attracting the attention of Clematis lovers looking for cutting-edge cultivars. This is a Spring Hill exclusive in the United States, so make sure to secure this incredible Clematis for your own garden. Clematis 'Floral Dance'

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. Prune hard in the spring and as often as you like to encourage reblooming and keep the plant as tidy as you like.
