These spring flowering clematis produce clusters of sweetly scented flowers. Their long narrow leaves are evergreen, leathery in texture and are similar to those of the common laurel.
Tips for the Armandii.
The Armandii prefer a sunny, free draining situation to enable them to perform well. If required, prune immediately after flowering.
These clematis can sometimes struggle in soil which is prone to water-logging. Give them a wall or sturdy fence to climb and ensure the soil is free draining. Occasionally some leaves will die off through age, this is natural and they can be carefully trimmed off.
Evergreen clematis have a natural dormant period which is around mid-summer when they look ‘tired’.
