Recipient of the Award of Garden Merit from RHS.

Hundreds upon hundreds of 2½-inch blooms!
An award-winner worthy of the finest garden settings, 'Apple Blossom' is an extraordinary way to welcome spring! With unstoppable fragrance and bloom strength, it is an unforgettable landmark in the garden.

The show begins in mid-spring in most climates, when masses and masses of 2½-inch appleblossom-pink blooms open from rosy-pink buds. Strongly scented of vanilla, they perfume the entire spring garden, remaining for weeks against bronze-tinted new foliage.

The new foliage of this Clematis is interesting too. Although it becomes leathery, tough, and dark green, in spring it opens with bronze tints. This is an evergreen Clematis, so the new leaves appear as the old are passing, for a lovely two-tone effect.

'Apple Blossom' reaches 10 to 15 feet high and 5 to 8 feet wide. It is ideal to train up a trellis or arbor, festoon a fence or outbuilding, or even cover the garden floor. Recipient of the Award of Garden Merit from the RHS, this classic selection is very fast-growing. It prefers a bit of shade in all but the most northern locations. Pruning Group I. Zones 6-9.
