A stunning white-flowered clematis that produces elegant fully double blooms on old wood in early summer, and delicate semi-double blooms later in the season on new wood. A compact climber, its twining stems reach 6 to 8 ft. tall with support. Ideal for containers, patios, and smaller gardens, and any border, fence or trellis. Use in urban, rural or woodland gardens as a ground cover as well as a climber. Easy to care for. Pruning Group: 3.
Group 1 – Flowers only on old wood (previous year). Prune after spring flowering.
Group 2 – Flowers on both old and new wood. Little pruning should be done for woody-stemmed members of this Group. If cut to the ground or pruned in fall or spring, flowering will be reduced or delayed, but not prevented.
Group 3 – Flowers only on new wood. Can be cut to the ground in fall or spring.
