    Small, white, bowl-shaped, early spring flowers with contrasting greenish-cream centres and parsley-green leaves. This unusual, evergreen clematis makes a lovely conservatory plant. In mild areas it may also be grown against a sunny, south-facing, sheltered wall. Protect the tender, new shoots from marauding snails and late-frosts.

  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring
