Botanical Name

Plant Common Name

Clematis, Luxurious White Clematis, Viticella Clematis

General Description

Luxurious white clematis is a herbaceous vining plant with small white, open bell-shaped flowers tipped in green. They bloom from midsummer through the fall. Leaves are green with hints of a gray casting on this native of southern Europe and extreme western Asia.

Clematis prefers a location with at least five to six hours of sun and a fertile, well-drained soil. In early spring, prune each stem's growth down to a pair of strong buds above the soil level. It can be used to dress up a wall, trellis, or arbor, or it may left to scramble over shrubs or into small trees.
