Jeffrey’s Evergreen Clematis. This cultivar is slightly more compact than the species with shorter internodes, but it is not a marked difference. But to me it appears to have more flowers per panicle than other selections, even though the individual flowers might not be quite as large. It makes for a stunning floral display when it flowers for us here beginning in late February into March. The flowers are also very pleasantly scented and spread their fragrance for quite a distance. The Armand Clematis seem to be happiest here when grown in filtered sun or morning sun and afternoon shade. Since Clematis climb by twisting petioles, it is ideally grown of fences, trellises and arbor. Give it uniform moisture with good drainage.
