Clematis cirrhosa var. balearica flowers in the depths of winter when little else is around. Its pale cream flowers are freckled with reddish-brown spots, and hang among ferny leaves, which take on bronze tints during winter. Flowers are followed by whiskery seedheads.
Like all early-flowering clematis, Clematis cirrhosa var. balearica requires little pruning other than the removal of any dead or damaged growth after flowering. Its tender nature means it's best grown near the shelter of a sunnny wall. To fully appreciate the distinctive freckle-like markings of this plant, train it over a pergola or arch.
