This clematis is fairly easy to grow in my zone 8a SC garden and thrives in full sun. Its blooms do not fade in intense sunshine.

Talking about Clematis 'Sweet Summer Love', EdBurton wrote:

I bought Sweet Summer Love in 2014,. It took until 2017 to reach maturity.
The plant was in full bloom in 2017 when one side started to die. Within weeks the entire plant was dead.
It was supposed to be fragrant, but mine had no fragrance at all.
I posted a few pictures on mine when it was in full bloom showing it in all its glory before it died.
Because it had no fragrance I never even considered replacing it.
So my experience is 3 thumbs down, I would love to hear how it did for others.

Talking about Clematis (Clematis pitcheri), ILPARW wrote:

This Pitcher's Bluebill or Purple Leather-Flower, gets about 12 feet long. The leaves get to be 3 inches by 2 inches in size. It is largely hairless. It is more woody than most clematis. It blooms about 1 to 2 months in mid-summer. It is a kind of leather-flower clematis with small urn-like flowers that have thick, succulent sepals, thus its name. It dies to the ground in late fall. It is found around woodlands, thickets, and fence rows from southwest Indiana to eastern Nebraska to Tennessee to Texas.

Talking about Clematis (Clematis morefieldii), ILPARW wrote:

This endangered native species was first discovered in 1980 in Huntsville, Alabama. It is native to woodland areas of southern Tennessee and northern Alabama, often growing on rock, rocks, and boulders. Its common name is Huntsville Vasevine or Leather-Flower. It is one of the leather-flower kinds of Clematis that get their name from the sepals of the urn-like or bell-like flowers being thick and succulent.

Talking about Clematis 'Henryi', tabbycat wrote:

My Henryi is starting all new growth, as it does after a dieback following a gorgeous display each spring. It's in a large hanging basket on the edge of my porch, where it gets morning sun and then bright light the rest of the day. It travels up the hanger and then mixes with a 5-leaf Akebia vine I have trained from post to post. This spring it traveled about 5' into the akebia and it looked like that vine had the large white flowers. I water it every other day with rain water I collect. To fertilize it and help fight the diseases it tends to get here in south Louisiana's humidity, I sprinkle granular Bayer Rose & Flower 3 in 1 once a month. It will bloom again in July and then again about October. Except for looking dead between flushes of growth and flowering, its huge white flowers are worth its care.
