Common Snowberry
Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis

Common Snowberry is a small deciduous shrub with characteristic white to pink flowers and clusters of white fruit.

This North American native species is very adaptable, and can be used for erosion control in riparian and restoration areas. Snowberry's fruit attracts wildlife, and livestock can consume the berries without issue.

Note: This difficult to grow species is not regularly scheduled to grow at TreeTime.ca. If you don't seedlings available for purchase, try purchasing seed from SeedTime.ca and growing your own? Or sign up for a restock notification above.

Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis (P.P.E) is a stunning climbing vine. The flowers are double flowers, meaning they have an inner pompom surrounded by outer petals. They are distinct dusty rose colour with a long bloom time from mid-summer to early fall. They can remain on the vine for up to three weeks. It is durable and easy to maintain and train.

One of the oldest clematis cultivars, Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis (P.P.E) is a winner of the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.

The Purpurea Plena Elegans Clematis will attract pollinators to your yard or garden attracting butterflies and hummingbirds. Because it is a climbing species, support from a trellis or fence is recommended. New vines emerge from the ground, so pruning should be done in early spring.
