Grows to 4 ft - 6 ft tall, Clematis 'Irene', is the perfect vine for a planter or a small garden. Selected by James van Laeken (USA), this early blooming large pink-flowered clematis is hardy to zone 4a (-35° C). Irene Clematis will bloom from May to June and again from August to September, if properly trimmed. Pruning Group: 2.
