A really popular climber that tends to fly out of the nursery beds as soon as we release it for sale, 'Winter Beauty' is an evergreen clematis that grows up to 3m (12ft) tall, with dark, evergreen foliage that will make a stunning centrepiece for your garden.
From mid-January to the end of March, 'Winter Beauty' will burst into life, its clusters of delicately alluring, bell-shaped flowers releasing a delicate, sweet fragrance into the winter air.
The small, nodding flowers are wax-like, with pure-white sepals surrounding a prominent group of cream anthers, and are borne from early to late winter. Opening one by one from pale-green buds, the little bells become paler and more flared at their tips as they mature.
A superb feature plant that flowers through the winter, 'Winter Beauty' is also remarkable for its evergreen leaves, which, unusually for an evergreen clematis, look like ordinary clematis leaves – providing year-round interest in your garden.
Robust and fully hardy, this clematis is highly ornamental over a long period when little else is in flower. Plant it in free-draining soil by doorways or alongside pergolas to make the most of its pristine, waxy urns of bloom and evocative fragrance.
Supplied as an established plant in a 7cm pot, it is always in demand, so make sure that you don't miss out on the limited stock.
