This rare, strongly-perfumed clematis from China, opens throughout summer its sizeable bunches of white-scented flowers with yellow anthers. Suitable for a sunny, sheltered position, ideally on a warm wall, its dark evergreen leathery leaves add to its attraction. It will even cloak an ugly tree stump or ancient shrub, giving it a new life!
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate. Do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may cause them to enter even deeper dormancy.
