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!

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.

The Kivistik Collection:
Summer Bloomers, Super Winter Hardy, Very Easy!

The Kivistik Clematis are bred in Estonia, close to the Arctic Circle
and bloom on the current year's growth. They are rarely over 6 feet tall,
and die back to the ground each winter. Although we list these plants as
Full Prune, most years all you will have to do is remove the dead stems
at ground level. Most of them bloom in Maine from late June on,
as long as it doesn't get too hot.

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.
