Clematis paniculata (C. terniflora)

A gorgeous sight when covered in pure white, lightly fragrant flowers in late summer, Sweet Autumn Clematis (C. paniculata, also known as C. terniflora), becomes a silvery mass of fluffy seed heads in the fall. We’re particularly fond of the established plant that grows on an old stone wellhead at the nursery (shown in photo) that’s over ten years old. But this prolific, small-flowered species will look equally impressive covering an upscale arbor or embellishing a utilitarian fence or garden shed. This hardy climber is a rampant grower that can reach to 30ft, but can easily be kept in check by cutting stems back to 12in in spring. It blooms on the current year’s growth, and unlike many Clematis, it will thrive and bloom well in partial shade. Plants are unlikely to bloom the first year, but expect them to begin blooming the second year.
