From Here to There:
Packing Your Clematis

First, the plants are carefully inspected by our highly trained staff.

We send plants with as many stems as possible.

Some varieties are not cooperative, however!**

Usually, healthy clematis roots are orange with white tips.

Some types have more fibrous, white roots.

Because of this, we grow clematis in two types of pots.
Those with orange roots grow in 14 inch deep tree pots.
Fibrous-rooted varieties grow in traditional gallon nursey pots.

**Some varieties, affectionately called the Stiff Necked Bunch around here, are difficult to grow with multiple stems. We do our best to get them to cooperate and we're getting better results every year.
