- Vigorous and durable
The Sparky series of clematis was selected from Dutch breeder Wim Snoeijer to give growers an option for producing earlier-blooming clematis that were easy to ship in bud and bloom for peak sales season. Sparky® Pink clematis brings an appealing pink color the group, along with the same, vigorous, disease-resistant nature and delicately toothed foliage. The primary bloom time for these Atragene-type clematis is mid-late spring, with reblooming coming throughout the summer.
