This hardy, late-flowering, deciduous clematis opens heavy masses of fragrant, white, propeller-like flowers held within fine ferny foliage, from September to October, the seeds ripening from Oct to November. From Hallasan and Cheju in S Korea, the roots are used in chinese medicine, and are known for their sedative, pain-relieving, and antibacterial qualities, but we do not recommend this use!
Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. Seeds usually germinate best cold at below 10 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 3-6 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.
