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.

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 sp. 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.
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 sp. to climb and fill in gaps by twining new shoots around a support as they grow.
