Overview

Clematis armandii is a large vigorous evergreen climber with dark green glossy leaves. Foliage is divided into a trifoliate arrangement comprised of 3 leaflets. Flowers measure around 5-6cm in width, they are scented, white with cream-coloured stamens. They are arranged in clusters and appear from early to mid-spring.
