The clusters of white star-like flowers have a good perfume. A superb evergreen climber that requires free draining soil, sunny aspect to enhance perfume, whilst avoiding very exposed situations.
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 to perform well. If required, prune immediately after flowering.
Evergreen clematis prefer a light loam or free-draining soil. Although evergreen, occasionally some leaves will die off, this is natural and they can be carefully trimmed off. In extreme heat, some may drop their leaves. Do not water too much at this time, but give them two or three doses of liquid tomato feed at fortnightly intervals which will perk them up and will encourage them to produce fresh leaves later in the summer. Avoid them becoming too excessively wet during their first autumn and winter in the ground or perhaps plant in the spring. For more Tips on growing Evergreen Clematis click here.

Brilliant cover for our frnce
I’ve wanted to cover our ugly fence for years because my husband won’t repair or replace it and I decided to take matters into my own hands by calling in Thorncroft for some advice on evergreen climber to hide it.
The hubby was not nets pleased at first but now he sees my wisdom because it has rambled its way along the fence about 3 meters In a single year.
