Product Information

Clematis montana ‘Fragrant Spring’ is a vigorous, deciduous climber, just the thing for creating a mass of spring colour in your garden!

This is without a doubt an exceptionally beautiful clematis. The foliage is tinted with bronze when young, before turning dark green as it matures, becoming the perfect backdrop to the delightful, fragrant pale pink flowers with yellow stamens.

Like all montanas. ‘Fragrant Spring’ is a fast grower, using its tendrils to clamber and climb up and over just about anything! It’ll quickly grow over garden arches and pergolas or up into surrounding trees and shrubs. It’s also very useful if you want to disguise any unsightly sheds or fences or create a screen by growing it on a trellis. Wherever you plant it, you’ll love the foliage, flowers and scent of this wonderful clematis.

Montanas should be pruned - if necessary - soon after blooming ceases removing only wood from previous years.  New summer growth will bear next year’s flowers and should be trained and tied in accordingly.

Supplied as an established plant in a 15cm pot, ready to plant, growing to 9m (30ft) tall and spreading 3m (10ft).

Top Tips

  • 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.

Care Information

  • Feed in spring with a general-purpose feed, avoiding the stems. Mulch immediately afterwards with organic matter such as well-rotted manure, leafmould or garden compost.
  • Water regularly during periods of dry weather in the first few seasons after planting, especially for container plants.
  • Clematis in pots should be given a liquid feed through the summer and early autumn.
  • Montana Clematis should be pruned when necessary soon after blooming, removing only wood from previous years - basically a tidy up when it has finished flowering. New summer growth will bear next year’s flowers and should be trained and tied in accordingly.
