Product description

  • 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

    Sweetly scented, large, soft pink flowers with golden-yellow centres in May and June and purple-flushed, mid-green leaves. This fast-growing clematis is excellent for training over a pergola or covering an unsightly wall or fence in a north-facing site. Plant near an entrance or path where the delicate almond fragrance can be appreciated.

  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the climber 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.

“Vanilla-scented, palest pink gappy flowers in profusion on this late-spring and early summer ‘montana’ clematis - glows white in shade”
