Special Attributes

While most Clematis species are deciduous, which means they lose their foliage during the cool season, the Snowdrift is an evergreen! But the unique characteristics don't stop there. While most other Clematis flower in spring or summer, the wonderfully fragrant, star shaped, pure white flowers of Snowdrift are borne in profusion mid to late winter and continue through early spring. The flowers stand out beautifully against the dark green foliage. Which brings up another unique characteristic. While most clematis have small leaves, the elongated leaves of Snowdrift are very large and lustrous, providing a tropical effect in the garden. Vigorously growing up to 20 feet in length, Snowdrift Clematis will quickly cover arches, fences, pergolas and other structures.

Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing over 20 feet long, the Snowdrift Evergreen Clematis needs plenty of room to grow. This magnificent vine is ideal for use to cover fences, arbors, pergolas and other overhead structures. Can be grown on a large trellis against a wall, which creates a very beautiful "live wall." A fine addition to fragrance gardens, white theme gardens, and tropical-look gardens.

Suggested Spacing:  4 to 6 feet apart to cover fences and walls

Cultural Preferences

Though Clematis armandii is very difficult to propagate from cuttings, it is exceptionally easy to grow, and quite vigorous in the landscape. It grows best in a moist but well-drained soil of average fertility and full sun to part shade. Though it's quite drought tolerant when established, it appreciate an occasional drink during prolonged drought. Make sure not to plant this one too deep as it tends to smother the plant. See pruning instructions just below.

Clematis Pruning Group 1

Clematis in pruning Group 1 flower on the previous years growth and therefore should not be cut back ground level. If you prune, do so as soon as possible after flowering. Avoid pruning after the end of July so the plant has time to produce next year's flower buds before winter sets in. To reduce bulk of older plants, additional pruning can be performed to remove three or four year old wood. Make pruning cuts above a pair of healthy buds.
