This has a lovely Almond scent and is a very strong grower. We have had this Clematis near to the rear entrance to the garage and it just throws out scent for a distance around and further.


Marzipan scent with smashing flower colour.
Sunny spot, preferably where you can enjoy the smell.
Cut back in early spring. Simple.
