clematis Advent Bells has a charming cream flower, very heavily freckled and striped inside with red, will provide a great profusion of dainty hanging blooms during the winter months. Even more abundant than the ever popular Freckles.
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. Avoid them becoming too excessively wet during their first autumn and winter in the ground or perhaps consider planting in the spring.

I bought this on a whim when i saw it in a magazine or online.
I wanted something for the winter months and thought it would take a year to get established before flowering. Thorncrofts plant arrived the day after ordering, it was nearly 3 foot tall and had flowers dripping from it all the way up.
the flower finished after just three weeks but then it wa s a new plant and then it started to grow, and boy did it GROW!!
Its now about 7 feet tall and spreads about the same. next year its going to be stunning! I wish I could post pictures here.
