Originally found in China, Clematis armandii, otherwise known as Apple Blossom or Snowdrift, is one of the most vigorous evergreen climbers around. It produces plenty of handsome, long, lance-shaped waxy leaves which will provide a year round protective screen against stark walls or fences. The real highlight of this plant is the abundance of strong scented, star shaped white flowers in early spring. Otherwise known as Apple Blossom due to the fragrance of the flowers, we'd recommend planting this climber where you can enjoy the scent, for example by a doorway or seating area. This low maintenance climber requires a sheltered spot away from the worst winter frosts and minimal pruning after flowering. 9cm pot plants supplied.

Pruning

Can be pruned hard in late winter/early spring.

Clematis can be planted October-May in areas with good drainage and plenty of sun is preferable. Soak in a bucket of water prior to planting and plant deep enough to allow plenty of room for root development. The roots of clematis like to be kept cool so it is a good idea to plant amongst low growing shrubs or bedding plants. If planting in containers, ensure the pot is large enough to allow the roots to expand/develop, as limitation of roots will certainly impede future success.
Clematis are vigorous climbing plants that reach various heights and spreads. Its best to prune back to keep control over the growth annually and initially they should be tied in to help direct the new growth. Apply a liquid fertiliser each year during the growing season, and water regularly during hot periods.
