A charming cream flower that has a very heavily freckled and striped inside of red, will provide a great profusion of dainty hanging blooms during the winter months. More abundant than the ever popular Freckles.
Advent Bells is a cross between napaulensis and Freckles, meaning it will usually have a summer dormancy.
These winter flowering clematis produce masses of nodding bell-like flowers. Whilst the foliage is classed as EVERGREEN it looks at its best in autumn, winter and spring, they can have a natural dormant period in summer, when the leaves sometimes go brown. The Cirrhosa Group require a sunny, free draining situation that is sheltered from the worst of the cold winds. If required, prune immediately after flowering.
IMPORTANT! While in a dormant state during summer they do not want frequent watering because this can cause damage to the root, they are used to being dry during the summer.
