Two seasons of bloom every year!

A Polish introduction from Brother Stefan Franczak.
Synonyms 'Warszawska Nike,' 'Midnight Showers'

From one of the most renowned Clematarians comes this magnificently colored reblooming variety. 'Warsaw Nike' regales with 5- to 6-inch blooms of a saturated reddish-magenta-violet hue with a darker stripe running down the center of each petal. Starred with a small primrose-cream center, these flowers look as though they're made of velour, and arise heavily both in early and midsummer and again in early and mid-fall.

'Warsaw Nike' was bred by Brother Stefan Franczak, a Polish priest also responsible for the glorious 'Blue Angel' and 'Polish Spirit,' among many, many others. It is more shade tolerant than many others, making it an invaluable choice for north-facing and dappled-sun gardens where other Clematis fear to climb.

This Clematis reaches about 8 to 12 feet high and 2 feet wide in any well-drained soil. It thrives in poor soils once established in the garden, and is generally less fussy and far more floriferous than most others. This makes it an excellent 'starter' Clematis for new gardeners. But beware -- its ease of culture, free rebloom, and great beauty may spoil you for all others! Pruning Group II. Zones 4-8.

Which plants should I grow to repel insects?

Many of the herbs will repel insects. Pennyroyal repels fleas and other insects. Pyrethrum repels moths, flies, ants, mosquitoes, cockroaches, mites, and bedbugs. Mint repels flies, fleas, and ants. Lavender repels flies, silverfish, and fleas. Catnip can repel mosquitoes. Thyme repels insects. Lemon Grass repels mosquitoes. Basil repels flies and mosquitoes. Sage repels a variety of insects. Chrysanthemum, grown for its beautiful flowers and for the extraction of pyrethrin (an organic insecticide), repels flies, beetles, mosquitoes, roaches, lice, and fleas.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits. Deer repellent plants include: lavender, onion, catnip, sage, chives, garlic, spearmint, and thyme. Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants. Also, place some along the property line and especially at key points the rabbits and deer are using as entryways, which can even deter them from coming onto your property.
