Clematis armandii 'Apple Blossom' is one of the earliest to flower in March and April. It is evergreen. The pinkish-white flowers smell deliciously of almonds. It likes a position in full sun or partial shade where it will make 15'-25'/4.5-7.5m in neutral but well-drained soil. Like all Clematis it will benefit from a top-dressing of bonemeal in Spring.
