The flowers range from 3-5 inches in diameter and appear in great profusion each spring.

This vigorous clematis vine can eventually climb to a height of 15-30 feet. It will cover an ugly chain link fence with splendor. You can also plant it beside a climbing rose and let the two plants intertwine for a stunning flower show.

This is an evergreen vine with glossy, dark green leaves that are attractive even when the plant is not blooming.

There is a named cultivar called 'Little White Charm' or virgin's bower which bears smaller (2.5 inch) flowers.

Clematis Pruning

Prune this evergreen Clematis right after it finishes blooming in the spring.

This will keep the vine densely foliated and cause it to bloom profusely the following season.

Unlike most Clematis plants which prefer to have their feet in the shade and their heads in the sun, C. armandii is a clematis for shade.

The best soil for this plant is rich, moist, and well composted. Plant the vines 3 feet apart if you are growing more than one.

It may start off slowly. The root system of Clematis plants normally use the first season to become established. You may be surprised at how quickly it climbs the second year.

Perennial in zones 6-9.
