Clematis chrysocoma var. sericea
at Digging Dog


Simple and beautiful, Clematis includes over 300 named cultivars and even more wild species than the rose. Our selections offer opulent blossoms, attractive, carefree foliage, and ornamental seed heads, in exchange for a minimum of attention. Use them to cover just about every stump and dead tree, as well as on trellises, arbors, pergolas, walls and tall shrubs. They prefer to be planted slightly deep in cool, well drained soil, with mulch or a ground cover to shade their feet; provide a support and let them climb.

Medium Band.

Clematis chrysocoma var. sericea full sun  partial shade

Also known as Clematis spooneri.

An avalanche of white blossoms smothers the deep green rounded foliage, like a heavy spring snowfall in the mountains. Amid 3-lobed deciduous leaflets that are downy on both sides and purple-tinged when young, broad, widely spaced tepals embellish each illuminated flower. This splendid climber bears some semblance to Clematis montana, though its vigorous form is more refined and somewhat less rambunctious, rendering it more suited to a terrace or smaller garden.

Size: 15' 0"–20' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 6.
