Clematis Armandii is one of the few true evergreen clematis.
A vigorous evergreen climber with saucer-shaped, highly scented white flowers, with cream anthers. The large arrow shaped leaves are glossy and create a wall of greenery - perfect for hiding unsightly corners of the garden, for growing into a tree or for covering a fence or wall. Will also grow well over an arbour or pergola.
Max Height 3m to 5m. Max Spread 2m to 3m. Flowers March to May. Full sun/partial shade. Frost hardy but prefers a sheltered position away from cold winds. Not necessary to prune - just remove any dry leaves in early Spring before the fabulous display of flowers appears.
Other flowering climbers include evergreen jasmines and wisteria sinensis
