Part of the famously vigorous Montana family, from May to June, and again in September, Clematis Spooneri is covered in brilliantly white, star-shaped flowers with golden eyes. The impressive effect is heightened by the climber’s marvellous scent and the fact that it attracts native pollinators. The deciduous foliage has a subtle bronze tint.

The first Clematis, Viticella, arrived in Europe from China in the mid-16th century. Two centuries later, the Victorians bred numerous varieties and their popularity continues. This clematis arrived in 1908. Our native is Clematis Vitalba, a familiar sight in autumn hedgerows, the fluffy seed heads explaining the traditional name: Old Man’s Beard.
