Description:

Clematis brachiata is a very hardy, deciduous climber with amazing, sweetly scented, creamy-white flowers that have a mass of bright yellow fluffy stamens in the centre.

It blooms from Febuary. to May. The thick, small fruits are covered with a tail of long, silvery-white, silky hairs.

This helps with seed dispersal. Allow to climb up into trees, use as a groundcover or tumble down banks. Prune back quite severely each year to encourage flowering. 

Its many medicinal uses have earned it the name of traveller’s joy.
