Latin Name: Clematis terniflora
Dainty, star-like creamy white flowers are sweetly scented and completely cover this vigorous vine late in the season, makes a fabulous screen; keep the roots cool for best results; can grow up to 20 feet; attractive silver seed heads.
Sweet Autumn Clematis is a multi-stemmed deciduous woody vine with a twining and trailing habit of growth. Its average texture blends into the landscape, but can be balanced by one or two finer or coarser trees or shrubs for an effective composition.
This is a high maintenance woody vine that will require regular care and upkeep, and is best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed. It is a good choice for attracting hummingbirds to your yard.
