We think of Clematis 'Praecox' (jouiniana 'Praecox') more as a spreader or a spiller than a climber. The long stems bear lightly haired gray green leaves in a pinnate arrangement. Terminal clusters contain up to 60 tubular flowers which are whitish at their bases but darker at their tips. The sepals reflex to reveal prominent stamens. All of our Clematis are two year old plants that are suitable for immediate planting in your garden.
