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. The Armandii Group prefer a sunny, free draining situation that is sheltered from the worst of the cold winds to enable them to perform well. If required, prune immediately after flowering.
Please do not grow these clematis in very windy situations, or soil which is prone to water-logging, as they will not appreciate it and will fail to thrive and possibly die. Instead, give them the shelter of a wall or sturdy fence and ensure the soil is free draining. Occasionally some leaves will die off through age, this is natural and they can be carefully cut away off.
Evergreen clematis have a natural dormant period which is around mid-summer when they look ‘tired’.
