I have seen several people on this forum give good reviews to Silver Star Vinery for the quality of their plants and am considering buying a clematis from them. I know I am late in the season and wonder how my new plant will cope being shipped and then planted in the midst of the summer heat. Can those of you who have ordered from them please give me an idea of how your new clems faired? Since they are pruned back hard before shipping, does it take until the next year for them to bloom? Did they arrive in good shape or totally dried out? Did they experience transplant shock after planting?
I am pretty new to this and any insight or experience you can offer will be very much appreciated!
