Buy Clematis 'Miss Christine' clematis (group 1): Masses of scented blooms

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Masses of single white flowers with a delicate pale pink edge appear from late spring to early summer. This lovely montana clematis is named after the youngest daughter of the breeder, Sheila Chapman. It's a vigorous grower and the flowers have a rich, sweet fragrance so perfect for planting near a seating area or doorway.

  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.

Incredibly fast-growing


I'm a bit new to gardening so perhaps it was to be expected but this clematis shot up the wall! I had planned to put up more trellising but sadly had to just tie it to a drain pipe, it was up to the second floor window by the end of the summer (I bought in May) on a north facing wall growing from a wooden box. We've had outrageous wind and it's clung on tenaciously. Not sure on flowering yet - flowers relatively early so I only saw a little of it last years but beautiful leaves and certainly vigorous




Healthy fast-growing climber, attractive fragrant flowers.

An excellent variety. Soon established and covers my fence in fragrant blooms each spring.

If I needed another strong growing clematis I would use it.


Planted this year. Growing strongly up support and on to a trellis, despite the hot dry summer. I look forward to seeing it flower in the spring.




Fabulous strong grower


I have planted this in a fairly shady yard against a fence to grow along the trellis. Since planted in the spring it has at least doubled in size with bright, chunky, healthy looking growth. Can't wait to see what it's like in flower!




Beautiful fragrance lovely healthy plant full of buds !


Absolutely NO cons. Very healthy plant arrived in full bud & lots of buds when flowered smells beautiful. Intend purchasing again for friends & family




Clematis miss christine


In good condition when it arrived, a good size and now well established. Good value for money.

Hello, I have a Miss Christine clematis. Would it be ok to plant in a pot to then trail along a full sun fence? Many thanks!


Hello there This is a lovely clematis, but being a montana it will be vigorous so it would have to be a large pot which would have to be well fed and watered. We wouldn't usually recommend a montana variety for a pot.

could you recommend a fast growing scented climber that will do well in a pot. It would be to go by our front door to climb along a fence. It's a sunny spot. thank you


Hello there I have attached a link below to climbers that are scented, that like the sun and are suitable for growing in a pot by a front door. Some are only frost hardy or borderline hardy so may need protection in cold weather. Hope this helps

Climbers for North East facing wall Hi I was just wondering if you could give me some advice please. Our house is a Victorian end of terrace - the side of the house faces North-East. The side of the house is very bare (only two tiny windows on ground floor) and we would like to grow something up the wall. We have had trouble with graffiti in the past and want to paint the side of the house and then put trellis to about 7ft. Can you suggest something that would grow quite quickly please. Kind Regards Joanna

Joanna Swainson

Thank you so much Helen, this helps a lot.

Hello Joanna, If you click on the link below it will take you to our fast growing climbers, which will cope with low light levels. If you click into each card you can then see the eventual height and spread of each plant - some of them are pretty big. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor

Climbing Plant on a North-Facing Trellis Dear Sir/Madam, Could you recommend a climbing plant for a trellis? The trellis in question is set against my neighbour's wall, and faces northward. So, I'm looking for a plant to provide maximum, attractive, fast-growing coverage. Yours faithfully, Peter

Peter Lawson

Hello Peter, I have done a search on our Plant Finder and if you click on the following link it will take you to all the climbers which will grow on a north facing aspect and are fast growing (although keep in mind most plants are going into their dormant period now) I hope this helps.
