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, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: May to June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Exquisite, pure white, late spring and early summer flowers with yellow centres and dark green leaves. This extremely vigorous clematis is excellent for training over a pergola or covering an unsightly wall, fence or garden shed. It's an ideal climber for a north-facing site.

  • 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.

I bought the clematis to train over a rose arch. It has established well and after freezing temperatures is still looking healthy and robust.

Hi, Is this evergreen or deciduous? If it's the latter can you recommend something very similar that doesn't lose its leaves in the winter please? I'm looking for something as easy to plant and take care of at the same time gives cover for nesting / roosting birds all year round. Thank you for any help and guidance, Ben.

Hello, All the montana clematis will lose their leaves in winter, however if you click on the following link it will take you to all the evergreen clematis we sell. These tend not to be as hardy as the montanas though, so you will need a sheltered spot for them. http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/climbers/clematis/plcid.15/plcid.16/vid.4/

Vigorous climbing plants Hi, I am looking for rapid growing climbers (evergreen and non-evergreen) that I can grow through trees without harming the host trees. The planting site is as follows:- -East facing but ultimately the aerial part of the growth will be facing west - Shaded at the base where the young plant will be started i.e.roots in shade but tip of young plant showing above adjacent hardstanding car park - Moist well draining soil Can you recommend some varieties? Many thanks, Roger
