Thanks to Malcolm Oviatt-Ham who gave us the seed for Clematis orientalis. This vigorous climber will cover a fence or trellis quickly. Even while new bell-shaped flowers are opening, the silky seedheads of earlier flowers are forming. By autumn the vine is draped in these silvery heads. Although this is a clematis for mass effect, close-up examination of the flowers is rewarding. The individual flowers are small with brown stippling on the yellow base. Within them you will find brown filaments. All of our Clematis are two year old plants that are suitable for immediate planting in your garden.

Midsummer to early autumn.  10-12 ft.
