This splendid new evergreen clematis, with the largest flowers of its type, will become a show-stopping feature plant in your garden throughout the year.
Evergreen, the plant bears handsome glossy green, deeply cut foliage that will fill pots, containers and borders all year-long and soon becomes smothered in an ‘Avalanche’ of pure snow-white blooms, centred with lemon-yellow stamens that last for several weeks from early spring.
‘Avalanche’ likes a sunny spot but with roots shaded by other plants if possible so great for mixed borders but is a great choice for a large pot too where it will grow up supports to produce a dense hedge-like display of flowers and foliage.
With a compact habit ‘Avalanche’ is easy to care for, growing to about 2m tall where it will add height to beds and borders and potted displays. Best of all it needs little care and no pruning except perhaps a light trim after flowering to keep its shape.
Delivered as an established plant in a 15cm pot with about 70cm of existing growth. Ready to plant straight away.
Plant with the crown of the plant 5-8cm deep to encourage new shoots to grow from below ground level.Clematis like a cool ‘root run’ so try and plant so that the roots are shaded. If you are planting in a sunny position, place some pieces of slate or flat stones on the soil after planting or use groundcover plants to keep the roots cool.
