Clematis Armandii, Good Focal Point in Your Flower Garden


A Blooming Clematis means its spring

The perennial Clematis Armadii  known for its sword shaped leaves is a beautiful plant keep that keeps green leaves in winther Clematis Flowers

The Flowers

But when its white flowers start to open your winter- has turned into a spring flower garden. No doubt, it’s the sign you have been waiting for.

Beauty often requires patience. While the spattering white flowers with their fresh green core are a sure fire signal that the season has changed.  Spring is in town!

Enjoy on the First Sunny Early March noon

On a beautiful soft noon in March, you look out your window, or talk a walk through your garden but not that all spring vanilla fragrance at yet

Although the Clematis is in full bloom, there is no sign of that their overwhelmingly spring smell until the flower blossom out. 

Things are moving fast now, within a few days the aroma of sweet vanilla will be all too noticeable when you pass your Clematis.  

When the Blooms Die Out the Vanilla like Fragrance is almost intoxicating

This aroma can be lovely intoxicating. And I remember that our neighbor kept telling she almost got drunk by the smell. We always suspected that a little bottle in her greenhouse was the real reason.

Never forget that you will only enjoy that wonderful, smell when you let the flowers degenerate.  Don't clip them away!

The Clematis bears flowers over two months. Just let it be and savor the experience.

This plant is perfect to place on a Pergola. Make that the entry point of your garden and you know you are home. I still can smell my mother clematis if I close my eyes. You can very easily give your children that same gift.

Graceful and Half-Hardy. The Clematis keeps its leaves the whole year and therefore has problems with heavy frost.

The Clematis is  Half-Hardy

17 degrees Fahrenheit in unprotected and 10 F in protected areas is the minimum temperature it can survive.

It’s good practice to cover the plants roots with a thick layer of hay or straw in winter to protect its roots. Because it keeps green the plant needs to maintain some flow of its juices.

Pruning and Maintenance

The Clematis can reach up to 15 feet in height and 20 in diameter. Pruning is really necessary if you want to keep this miracle under control.
