Clematis armandii 'Apple Blossom' has superb evergreen foliage that looks good all year round, accompanied by large sprays of whitish pink, vanilla-scented flowers, deeper pink in bud, in early and mid-spring. Although the species has a reputation for being tender, it is hardier than is generally thought and as long as it is given a sheltered spot - ideally against a sunny wall - it performs very reliably in most parts of the country. But choose a spot where it has room to spread: it makes a large plant and no routine pruning should be necessary. Prune back to healthy buds immediately after flowering if the spread of the plant needs to be limited.

Can you take cuttings from one of these plants and if so should it be taken from the roots? And when should it be done? Would this be the same for the 'snowdrift' armindii?
Thank you in advance
I have the same question as the one above on this page. My neighbough has one and I would love to have a cutting if at all possible. It has spread over our fence and looks fantastic. I want one to be planted next to a non evergreen of the same colour ie. my montana which has grown all over my other neighbours laylandi so it will look green all year.
How do you reply to these info requests? Thanks in advance of reply.
