Alsip Nursery offers many varieties of climbing vines such as Boston Ivy and Amethyst Falls Wysteria. Other popular varieties include Honeysuckle, climbing Hydrangea, climbing roses, and even some annual varieties such as Mandevila, Bouganvila, and Passion Vine
By far the most asked for type of vine we sell is the Clematis. It is available in 4” pots, gallon, and up to five gallon pots.Popular varieties include Jackmanii, Nelly Moser, and Sweet Autumn Clematis.
Clematis are a light weight plant and can grown on most anything that you can give them a chance to grow on such as trellises, fences, up walls, and even through trees and some shrubs. Clematis prefer cool soil temperatures so planting them near a shrub or tree with a not so aggressive root structure will add shade to the roots and help your clematis grow well.
Clematis can sometimes take a couple seasons to really get growing. A good phrase to remember and describe the early years of it’s lifecycle is “The first year it sleeps, the second year it creeps, and the third year it leaps.” So before you become discouraged that your clematis hasn't taken, be patient and before you know it you'll have a beautifully lush addition to your garden!
