Evergreen climber

An evergreen climber with fragrant blossoms. These are what make the Clematis armandii "Apple Blossom" in a nursery pot so unique. It is one of the few climbing plants that stays green. The clematis is excellent for creating a barrier that no one can see through. Let the clematis climb up a boring wall or bare partition. They can also be planted in the garden or in a flower pot on a patio, roof terrace or balcony. The light pink flowers that appear during the spring have a pleasing, fruity aroma. They closely resemble apple blossoms. This climber can always use a helping hand. It grows rapidly: up to four metres. In order for the plant to grow upwards, it needs to be secured. It is easily done using a rope, wire, or anything similar. For full growth, we recommend using three plants per metre.Pruning is not necessary. However, dead and damaged twigs should be removed. The clematis grows in humus-rich, moisture-retaining soil. Water it regularly to keep the soil moist. It's best to give them extra water during dry periods. And they need sufficient light in order to grow well. The clematis grows best in full or half sun.

Planting

Prior to planting, give the clematis roots a good soaking in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitable hole in fertile, well-drained, loose soil. Place the clematis root ball at the correct depth - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Refill the hole, heel well in and water immediately after planting. Clematis will thrive in a mix of nutritious compost and garden soil. This vine will thank you for a spot in full sun or part shade.

Clematis with other plants

Clematis is a fast growing climber, that will completely cover pergolas, fences and climbing frames in a very short time. It is also possible to train the shoots through larger shrubs - such as jasmine (Philadelphus). Even a tree with lots of branches can be a great support for this clematis. Another plant that harmonises well with this beautiful small-flowered clematis is the honeysuckle (Lonicera) - or try it next to a rambling rose for some spring colour.

Care

The clematis is also called Old Man’s Beard and dislikes dry soil, so water more often during dry periods. You can keep its ‘feet' cool and moist by planting low-growing plants or shrubs around the base. A mulch of good garden compost mixed with granulated cow manure now and then, will be appreciated. This climber grows well along a fence or pergola. Help Clematis to climb and fill in gaps by twining new shoots around a support as they grow.

Pruning Clematis

This Clematis is an early and small-flowered clematis (pruning group 1). The flowers appear on last year's wood.
Clematis are divided into 3 pruning groups. This one is a group 1 - Pruning is not strictly necessary but remove all dead and damaged branches at the start of March. Snip of overblown blooms in the summer. Corrective pruning after flowering can help keep its shape.

Extra

The flowers of this clematis are quite small but appear in abundance. This is one of the earliest and most profusely flowering clematis. This vine grows rapidly and covers a large area in a short time.

Over time, this clematis can reach a height of 5 metres and the sight of all those buds just bursting to open is just lovely!
