Pacific Northwest: Clematis vines have some of the biggest, most dramatic blooms of any plant in the Northwest, and now is the time to buy them at the nursery for the best selection. They're newly out of dormancy and just starting to bloom, so you can see the color from the flower itself, not the tag. Favorites include Clematis "Niobe" with deep red blooms, and Clematis "Jackmanii" for a rich purple.
