I bought this last year, as a small vine ( less then a foot tall). I placed it in full sun, but made sure the roots were well multched, and shaded. I also planted it 3 noded deeper then it was in its pot, as is usualy adviced for clematis.

The thing grew to over 7 feet, but didnt flower ( so im assuming what i bought was a cutting).

We had a few cold days this winter ( -32C) one night. And it was exposed for the most part. It turns out it died back to a few inches from the ground, where its comming back with a vegence! It even has 3 or 4 flower buds.

I got this from home depot, which apperantly gets their pl;ants from down so uth ( toronto for me). Their climate is slightly warmer, and I have to guess that they werent suited for the winter. Now I hope they are a bit more acclimated.

A good, sturdy, no fuss Clematis that does well in Coastal So. Calif. and tolerates late summer heat and humidity. Huge flowers and a fast grower once established. Highly recommended !

This is a great Clematis! if you get one i it should be this one. Here it blooms in early may with huge white flowers, and later in the summer it reblooms with tiny white airy flowers... it's amazing! mine receives no water besides rain and it gets light shade in the morning and then a little but of sun very late in the afternoon. Certainly a wonderful carefree plant.

This is a great clematis, it grows quickly filling in a trellis in no time and blooms freely most of the summer.

My parent's have this plant climbing up the lamp post in their front yard/garden. I think it looks beautiful! Full, glossy folliage with beautiful white blossoms. I see it as a "no-brainer" and if I had more space I would plant one for myself.
