This delicate, late flowering climber produces an endless succession of blooms (up to 200 flowers on each branch) from July until October, when the frost sends it to sleep again. The fragrant brown-eyed lemon yellow flowers give an unseasonal supply of delicate lemon perfume. Not long after the flowers start opening, the silvery-hairy seedheads come along - much like other clematis, always appreciated.
Pre-chill seeds 2-3 months. Sow March-April or November on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost and cover with a very light sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature of between 15-20C. Germination can take 1 to 2 months and may be erratic.
