Scented, bell-like cream winter flowers heavily speckled inside with reddish-brown 'freckles' and glossy dark-green leaves. This evergreen Clematis is ideal for training over a sunny pergola or arch. This is the best way to appreciate the distinctive freckle-like markings which are less visible when the plant is grown against a wall.

Garden Care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted, prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong 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.
