Clematis x armandii 'Snowdrift'
Armands Clematis, Snowdrift Clematis
Cat# 1481 Clematis 'Armandii' is one of the few evergreen clematis. It not only has attractive, dark, long-pointed, glossy green leaves that are virtually pest free, but it also has wonderfully fragrant, small white flowers in early spring that completely cover the vines. Grow this beauty in light shade and good soil and let it twine up a trellis or fence, or ramble over shrubs. Not only will you have delicate, graceful flowers in the spring, but it will be handsome throughout the rest of the year. Vines can grow to 20 feet or so, and can be very long lived. Since flowering is in spring on the previous year's growth, prune, if necessary, after flowering in late spring or early summer. Choice.
