Sweet Summer Love displays fragrant, long-blooming cranberry-purple flowers all summer. It must be trained up a trellis or support. The first year you plant it, it does not do much besides grow roots. The next year it takes off and does not litter the garden with unwanted seedlings. 

  • 10-15 feet tall and 6-10 feet wide at maturity
  • Grow in zones 4-9
  • Plant in part to full sun (4+ hours daily)

Care: Sweet Summer Love prefers average, well-drained but moist soil. Keep the roots cool by applying 2-3 inches of mulch around the base of the plant. It may benefit from hard pruning in late winter, leave at least two pairs of buds on each stem.

      The plants arrived in beautiful condition. I can't wait to enjoy them this summer on my deck. I also got one to plant on a fence for my neighbor to enjoy.
