A vigorous clematis, this vine doesn’t just grow tall — up to 30 feet in a few months. It also grows wide, ensuring full coverage.

Consider its tiny white flowers, which bloom in late summer and early fall, a bonus. Oh, and did we mention that the plant tolerates most soil and sun conditions?

The result is an intimate seating area that can be used for relaxing or dining.
