Hummingbird Farm is a family owned mail order clematis nursery located in Maine, on the border of Zones 4 and 5. We grow and sell only clematis and strive to provide both a great selection of plants and all the information you need to grow them successfully. We sell to all US states, but be aware that we specialize in clematis for the colder areas of the country.
We ship to US addresses only.
Apologies to our friends in Canada!


Open by appointment.
Please call or email to schedule a visit.


We have completed shipping for July
and will not ship clematis during August.
Orders received during August will ship in September.


Bio Tone is now available with free shipping when shipped with your clematis order!
You'll find it - and several other clematis-related items - here.

Super Early and Super Easy!

These clematis are GREAT choices for beginners:
They start the clematis season with very early blooms, usually with the lilacs.
They have bell shaped, nodding flowers, followed by handsome seed heads.
All are very winter hardy - our customers in Alaska love them!
We've never (knock on wood!) had diseases on these varieties.
Because they are so cold tolerant, they may not thrive in hot climates.
No Pruning Needed!

Clematis that don't climb! Very Easy!

These clematis don't climb; they will sprawl unless provided with support.
Most grow 3 to 4 feet tall and many have the downward facing bell shaped flowers.
Some varieties are lightly fragrant, especially when planted in full sun.
Lots of them are good choices for growing in containers.
They are virtually wilt free, although they are sometimes prone to powdery mildew.
Full Prune in late winter or early spring.

Early Bloomers, Challenging

These are the plants that most people think of when we say, "Clematis".
They bloom in late May or early June and have large, flat flowers.
Some varieties will repeat bloom in late summer.
These varieties are slow to mature, less robust than other types
and sometimes can be a pain in the neck. If you've never grown clematis,
we recommend you start with plants from another section.

Many authorities recommend treating these varteties as "moderate prune" clematis.
However, we respectfully disagree: Please see our Pruning Primer
for more information.
