Clematis napaulensisOriginating from Nepal and parts of China, this rare and unusual clematis has a fascinating growth habit. Clematis napaulensis is cloaked in lush green foliage from autumn to early summer, before shedding its leaves in summer when most plants are in full growth. It’s bell-shaped, winter blooms release a delicate perfume that hangs on the cool December air,that form interesting seed heads as spring approaches. This extraordinary, low maintenance Clematis needs little pruning, making it ideal for brightening the dull winter months. Grow it in a sheltered position through another deciduous climber to hide its bare stems in summer. Height: 3m (9') or more, depending on growing conditions and maturity. Spread: 1.5m (5'). Pruning group: 1. Supplied in 7cm pots.
These clematis plants are perfectly hardy and can be planted outdoors upon arrival. However, young plants are more vulnerable to extremes of winter weather and may benefit from growing on in an unheated greenhouse, coldframe or similarly sheltered spot until spring.
