USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

Plant Information
8’-10’ tall x 4-6’ wide. Venosa Violacea Clematis (Clematis viticella) is a French heirloom introduced in 1883, and has a long been cherished for its large, breathtaking blooms and clean foliage. The slender form lends itself to lampposts and obelisks. Like other Clematis, Venosa Violacea performs best when roots are shaded and tops receive full sun. Though plants tolerate partial shade, flower color is most vivid in full sun. Clematis are divided into three groups according to pruning needs. Venosa Violacea belongs to pruning group 3, which bloom late in the season on new growth. Prune vines in late winter to early spring, cutting back hard to a set of strong buds about 1 foot above ground level. Remove all dead material above the buds and clean out any old foliage. Plants tolerate deer and rabbits.
