Clematis armandii
‘Apple Blossom’

Hundreds vanilla-scented blooms cover this evergreen, fast-growing vine! Rosy buds burst into an abundance of bee and butterfly attracting, delicate pale pink 2.5” blooms all thru Springtime. The twining tendrils rapidly grow to 15’ with beautiful two-toned foliage as the coppery new growth matures into lush emerald leaves. It’s the best way I can think of to cover an unsightly fence or wall! Provide well-drained soil and water regularly its first year to give it a good start. Mulch annually in early Spring. This group 1 Clematis needs little to no pruning beyond annually removing any dead growth. It can be cut back to 6” from the base after flowering to refresh or reshape – this should only be done every 3 years at most.
