I ordered 2 clematis last year from Hummingbird and they are thriving, so I ordered 4 more this year. Winters can be harsh here in Kennebunk, Maine so ordering plants that can do well is always a challenge. The Hummingbird plants came extremely well packed with plenty of soil and boxed so that they did not get damaged in transit. The plants were hardy and looked very healthy. I planted them right away and they are already doing well with no transplant shock - great plants from a great vendor. Thanks for being such a tremendous company caring about quality and customer experience.

Plants were very well packaged and received in excellent condition. Plants have been in the ground for almost 2 weeks and appear to be growing well. Their website has excellent clematis care, planting and pruning requirements.

Living in very rural South Dakota, my plant options are very limited so I often order from online garden companies. In fact, most of my 30 plus varieties of clematis have come to me via the mail. When I opened the package from Hummingbird Farm, I was so very impressed. Never before have I received clematis before with such a well developed root system. The planting instructions were clear and very helpful as well. I am confident that my new plants will grow well.

Two precious, robust alpine clematis! Well packaged and perfect specimens. In the ground today by the side of two arbors, setting the vibe into a special memorial garden.
“Layla’s Garden” perfect service too. A great nursery!

Clematis arrived well packaged, healthy, in a timely manner. Hummingbird Farm is a delight. Kind, laid back, honest, knowledgeable. And fun! More, please! I will add that I bought clematis from them last year, too and they’re back from our harsh Minnesotan winter. Myriam, zone 4b

Excellent selection of clematis. The website is organized to show which varieties are easy and which ones are more challenging. C. texensis "Princess Diana" arrived with safe packaging and neatly-trimmed healthy growth. I used the recommended organic fertilizer when planting....One week later, it is already putting out new leaves.

The customer service was absolutely flawless, I felt really appreciated as a customer and all my questions (and I had a lot) were answered in depth. The 2 clematis I ordered arrived quickly and packaged well, with great root systems. I will be a return customer!

First time purchasing from Hummingbird Farm. I've ordered 3 clematises: the Asao, Kimi'ideara, and the Sano-no-murasaki. They came in perfect condition because of how well the packaging was and on time from Maine to NYC. All three of the clematises have amazing root growth and were perfectly healthy looking. Hope to see it grow splendidly the following year and I plan to be a returning customer for Hummingbird Farm in the future.

Clematis came beautifully packaged. It wasn't sent as soon as I ordered it because of a heat wave. I appreciated that consideration. I had some questions and called Hummingbird Farm on a Sunday. I was surprised that Cindy was at work (or at least answering the work phone). She was so nice and friendly and extremely helpful.

A stellar experience from start to finish. The website is a wonder in itself, a veritable encyclopedia of Clematis that is something Hummingbird Farm can be justly proud of. Ordering couldn't be easier, and many plants were still in stock, which is pretty impressive for late May. My sole desired plant, the Chloe bush clematis had a mass of roots that would put a bittersweet to shame! It was sent in a sturdy box, and secured so that it could not move or fall out of the cardboard structure keeping it in place. I have never seen a clematis as healthy as this. It transferred to my garden with nary a leaf out of place. I'll be sure to use Hummingbird Farm for all my future clematis needs. A WONDERFUL COMPANY WHICH ABSOLUTELY DESERVES ITS HIGH RATING FROM DAVE'S GARDEN!!!

I've ordered multiple clematis from Hummingbird Farms. All have arrived promptly and have looked very healthy. I planted a few in containers which can be tricky in MN. A couple didn't make it and when I contacted Hummingbird replacements were quickly sent along with tips given to help survival in tricky growing conditions.

I recently moved from a planting zone 7-8 to zone 3-4. I'm so glad I found Hummingbird Farms to help me with the right clematis for my new garden! I chose two which arrived much quicker than I expected (yay!), and were very healthy. I immediately planted them and now, a week later, have nice new growth on the trailers. The company is also very responsive to emails and I appreciate their dedication to keeping their customers happy--i.e., provide beautiful plants and any support necessary. Well done. Looking forward to many years of beautiful clematis.

My sister sent me 3 clematis (sweet summer love, fuchsia flash and Edda) for the loss of my sweet dog. I am not a natural gardener, but love to test my hand at it. I received them well packaged and in great condition! Cindy has been OVER THE TOP AMAZING AND HELPFUL! I got my first one in the ground and am so grateful for her help! She spent a lot of time on the phone with me before I started the process. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thank you

I live in zone 5 and have about 30 different clematis. The plants I have received from this company have been of fair size and very healthy. What I absolute love about Hummingbird Farms is the amount of quality information they give. Examples are: types of clematis/pruning/ what plants grow best in certain areas/ how long particular clematis bloom/ what plants do well in partial shade/sun and much more. This is my go to site for information on clematis and their clematis always grow nicely in my 5b zone.

Great communication. Plants arrived in wonderful condition, despite the postal service bashing the box up so much that the mailman recorded it as "damaged" upon arrival, just in case I needed to make a claim. The planting directions were excellent, and I think the clematis have an excellent chance of surviving, despite my so-so track record with clematis. Looking forward to next summer!

As an avid gardener and a person that has spend 21 years working in a retail garden center, I know exactly what I am looking for and what qualifies as an exceptional plant. I made a point not to comment or rate hummingbird Farm until I seen how the vine performed after a period of time once it was in the ground. I have never ordered a clematis from an online source so I was very cautious.... I am glad I picked Hummingbird farm! The plant came in slightly small ( very well packaged with instructions.) which is what I was expecting for shipping purposes, but I noticed the first segment of the vine had been what appeared to be pinched back several times and had formed a nice, relatively thicker segment. The two vines sat for a couple of weeks then exploded with new growth! Three to four new shoots started climbing the trellis and one has already set a bud! Would DEFINITELY recommend to others and I know I will be ordering again from them.

Hummingbird Farm is a pleasure to work with. Their clematis plants are consistently healthy and strong on arrival and grow beautifully. The information on their website is informative and fun to read. Because Hummingbird Farm's approach is experience-based, rather than just marketing-based, you feel as if you are learning about Clematis as well as shopping for Clematis. Best of all, Cindy Tibbetts is incredibly patient and generous with her time and knowledge. Since Clematis plants are a long-term investment for most gardeners, it's reassuring to work with a company that honors your commitment with their own commitment to your success. Thank you !

Hummingbird Farm Spring 2019. Once again, they've exceeded expectations. Just when I was losing my mind over voles, I received an article about voles from Hummingbird Farm with hints and encouragement. This year's order, as in previous years, arrived in great condition and beautifully packed. Thank you !

Hummingbird Farm 2020 exceeded my expectations - again! In this difficult time for all, my clematis order arrived on time, in perfect condition and ready to grow. Cindy even had time to respond to a question or two with her usual blend of knowledge, grace and humor. The quality of Hummingbird Farm's plants, advice and website is evident every time I look at my Clematis that have all thrived despite my steep learning curve. Thank you Hummingbird Farm!

My first experience mail ordering plants. Very pleased with the clematis that I received. Very healthy with nice roots. They were shipped on the 18th and arrived on the 21st in tip top shape. Cindy was very helpful in accommodating a change I wanted to make after placing my order. Good planting instructions included. Thank you Hummingbird Farm.

I ordered 4 clematis on May 5, received them quickly even in these troubled times, and am delighted with this company's service in every way. Their web site is easy to use and informative. The plants arrived in excellent health and were packed in paper bags rather than plastic pots. I hadn't seen this eco-friendly method of shipping for non-woody plants before. I contacted Cindy Tibbetts with a query about future plant availability and received a speedy and charming response.

Wonderful company, ordered two more plants this year and they arrived in amazing condition. Large plants with lots of vigor. The four from last year made it through a brutal winter here. We are zone 3a and after many months of cold, down to -40, the plants couldn't wait to come up this spring. Can't say enough about this company.

Hummingbird Farm has a very informative and easy website to order from. With a wide variety of Clematis, they are all categorized, making it easy to know which plant is suitable for you and your region. I was very pleased to receive my package hassel free within two days, (nothing like 'White Flower Farm' and 'The Tree Center' weeks...). My two Clematis were well packed and healthy.
