Four large delicately crimped petals, in a shade of pale creamy yellow (the word cirrhosa means 'yellowish'), open in the winter, with their feathery tops surrounded by many stamens. This beautiful clematis loves to scramble up and into hedges and bushes in the Mediterranean regions from Portugal and Morocco to Asia Minor and further on to the Himalayas and because of its winter blooming in mild areas it deserves to be better known.
Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
