My plants are on their third year, and they were so beautiful this last spring! I have mine growing over a sturdy metal arbor and the two plants I planted on one side nearly have the entire arbor covered by now. The flowers and smell have been heavenly this year.

Lovely vanilla fragnance and tough to all kind of critters and virus. Has full sun all day and tolerates that and the drought that goes along We had near to 40C in my sheltered backgarden and it kept fresh. The scent is the most wonderfull from this Clematis. I'm very happy with it.
