Alan Titchmarsh says...
"An evergreen climber with perfumed flowers - what more could you want?"
Fragrant Virgin's Bower, Old Man's BeardClimbing semi-evergreen stems carry starry white flowers from midsummer, with a deliciously sweet almond fragrance. The flowers give way by late summer to silky seed heads that make a striking Autumn display. Clematis flammula is fast growing and wonderfully vigorous, and pruning to ground level each year makes it easy to maintain. Superb for growing through shrubs and trees, or scrambling over walls and fences. Height: 5m (16'). Spread: 1m (3'). Pruning group 3.
