Fragrant creamy-white winter flowers speckled inside with reddish-maroon 'freckles' and bronze-tinted evergreen leaves. Probably the best way to appreciate the distinctive freckle-like markings and delicate scent of this winter-flowering clematis is to train it over a sunny pergola doorway or arch. Frost hardy it may not survive severe winters.

Garden Care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering cutting back over long shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
