This vigorous, evergreen clematis blooms in early spring with masses of small, star-shaped, white flowers that are sweetly fragrant -- just the antidote you need after a long grey winter. The leaves are long, pointed and deep green and are lovely in winter. Tolerant of part shade. As with all clematis C. armandii appreciates it's roots in the shade.
