Sweet Autumn Clematis
A gorgeous sight when covered in pure white, lightly fragrant flowers in late summer, Sweet Autumn Clematis becomes a silvery mass of fluffy seed heads in the fall. We're particularly fond of the established plant that grows on an old stone wellhead at the nursery (shown in photo) that's over 10 years old. But this prolific, small-flowered species will look equally impressive covering an upscale arbor or embellishing a utilitarian fence or garden shed. Pruning group 3.
This hardy climber is a rampant grower that can reach to 30′, but can easily be kept in check by cutting stems back to 12″ in spring. It blooms on the current year's growth, and unlike many Clematis, it will thrive and bloom well in partial shade. Plants are unlikely to bloom the first year, but expect them to begin blooming the second year. Please note: Sweet Autumn Clematis can grow quite vigorously to the point of being invasive in warmer areas of the country
