Armand clematis 'Enham Star'

Clematis armandii 'Enham Star' | Rating: 0 votes | Print / Pdf

Clematis armandii is also known as Armand clematis. This is a fast climber with delicate white flowers that have a lovely scent similar to hawthorn blossom. It was originally discovered in China by by the famous plant hunter Ernest Wilson and introduced into England in 1900. This is a tender variety and so is best suited to a sunny sheltered position out of the wind. Frost damage will turn the leaves an unattractive brown colour. After flowering, remove any dead growth, other than this it requires no further pruning. They are also quite prone to disease and pest damage. Not really a clematis for a beginner.
