The flowers of cirrhosa Jingle Bells are a beautiful creamy-white, they are nodding and bell-shaped with a hint of citrus scent if grown in a sunny location. A charming and prolific winter flowering evergreen clematis that requires a sunny and free draining soil.
Often known as cirrhosa var. purpurascens 'Jingle Bells'
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.
