When I was a little girl, I would play in my yard and come across a beautiful red and orange clematis vine hiding among my Zinnia plants. My father would trim it and change its color, the vibrant colors pairing well with the autumn leaves around me.Sweet autumn clematis is a very hearty grower and can bloom in even lackluster soil, given that it receives a solid six to eight hours of sunlight each day. The plant produces deep roots, so when you are transplanting a plant to a different place in the garden, ensure the roots sit at least three to four inches underground to keep the roots cool and the plant thriving during the heat of the summer.

The blossoms are so profuse that they generally cover the leathery dark green leaves. Their delightful fragrance, a mixture of sugar, honey, and vanilla, fills the air as you pass by. Even after flowering is over, this vine remains attractive, thanks to the silvery seedheads left by the passing flowers, therefore providing winter interest.
