Clematis 'Bees' Jubilee': Our Favorite Flowers
2011, Dorling Kindersley Limited
Clematis Bees Jubilee boasts a lovely seven to eight petal flower. The wavy petals are white on the margin and brilliant pinkish red down the center maroon stamen. It is a compact plant suited for containers. The seedheads are beautiful, too.
Clematis is an eager climber, adding color to trellises, arbors, lampposts or mailboxes. These vines want sun on their foliage and flowers but appreciate having their “feet” in the shade. There are tons of species and cultivars, deciduous and evergreen, in a wide range of colors, including red, pink, blue, purple and white. Zones vary, depending on the species and cultivar.
