From plant Delights: Clematis cirrhosa blooms from now until early spring, so you will often find the flowers completely encased in snow or ice...pretty amazing! Did you know that clematis and hellebores are first cousins? They are both members of the Ranunculus (buttercup) family Can you see the resemblance in the flowers? I can't ...
Clematis armandii ‘Apple Blossom’ is a very special and rich flowering clematis with fragrant, pinkish-white blooms that look a little like apple blossom. This variety retains its leathery leaves over the winter too. The darker flower petals fade to white the older they get. Also suitable for a patio planter.
