This is one of the plants discovered by British plant hunter E. H. Wilson in China in 1900!

Fast-growing and early to bloom, it's in easy-care Pruning Group I.
Like masses of tiny propellers, these 4-petaled white blooms fill the spring garden, releasing the sweet scent that bowled over plant hunter E. H. Wilson when he discovered the species in China in 1900. Two inches wide and of a waxy consistency, the blooms stand out brilliantly against glossy, leathery deep green foliage.

A fast-growing evergreen Clematis, 'Snowdrift' is breathtaking. Expect it to reach 10 to 25 feet high when mature, and to spread about 5 to 8 feet wide.

A superb choice for threading through an open fence, climbing a wall or sturdy arbor, or even scrambling along the ground, this is a rugged, over-the-top cultivar. It is wonderfully floriferous and simply gorgeous. And if you like C. armandii cultivars, take a look at 'Apple Blossom' as well! Pruning Group I. Zones 6-9.

Which plants should I grow to repel rabbits and deer?

Planting garlic, onions, chives, lavender, rosemary, and sage around rabbit-susceptible plants will repel rabbits.

Be sure to strategically place these repellent plants around and in between rabbit and deer-susceptible plants.
