Description

A wonderful clematis with lovely yellow nodding flowers that mature to a rusty orange and then wispy seed heads which means it looks good almost all year.

This starts to flower in early to mid summer and goes on looking good with its lemon coloured, lemon peel textured flowers and then their spidery, puff ball seed heads into the late autumn. It thrives on a north wall and it is the ideal plant to train along a fence as it will drape elegantly for longer than almost any other plant I can think of.

Care Tips
