Overall: I really love this plant, because it has such gorgeous flowers and scent and evergreen leaves BUT it is a nightmare to get established and once you've achieved that (two plants later in my case - NOT cheap!!), they seem to catch every nasty in the book! I would seriously recommend going for one of the montana clematis or the yellow winter flowering (sorry can't remember name - Bill McKenzie??) as they are so much easier and less prone to death!!
