Clematis terniflora has clusters of small white star-shaped flowers with a gorgeous hawthorn-like perfume, from which it gets its common name 'Sweet Autumn Clematis'. Also known as clematis maximowicziana
This lovely group of scented clematis can make useful additions to our gardens. They produce literally hundreds of star-like flowers, which have a hawthorn-like perfume, attracting bees and butterflies to the garden. Whilst these can be grown in any aspect, they will flower better, and the perfume will be stronger if grown in a sunny, free draining position.

Flower power worth the wait
If you want to cover a fence fast this is for you. It's year 2 for mine and although it's a late flowerinf clematis its worth the wait. Still has masses of flowers in October.
Easy to keep in check as it's group 3 prune.
Only fault is the leaves on the lower stems die off early on so grow something tall in front to hide this.

Plants arrived in excellent condition and in the timeframe promised!
My congratulations on your excellent packaging, which provided complete protection - the plants arrived in perfect condition. I'm somewhat of a connoisseur of packaging for dispatch, having made my living as a maker of glass objects for forty years.
The driver commented that usually parcels have an indication as to which way should be up, and I replied that the handles sort of indicated the right way up. I report this simply because it wouldn't hurt to mark an arrow with a marker pen.
Friendly, courteous and efficient delivery - congratulations to Interlink!
Thank you also for the notes and information provided and appreciation of your expertise and experience in matters clematis.

Let it grow up, and it becomes spectacular, and with magnificent white clusters; try it on a high tree, it will make clouds of colour; flowering time adds an extra value!
