The Sweet Autumn Clematis can grow into a veritable blanket of tiny white blooms that densely carpet vines with dark green foliage. This energetic climber is surprisingly fragrant and blooms from late summer well into late fall. The star-shaped blooms are tiny, ½- to 1-inch blossoms and are powerfully fragrant. After the flowers are spent, Sweet Autumn produces silvery seedheads that are perfect for floral arrangements with a wintry theme.

The Sweet Autumn Clematis is extremely vigorous and establishes itself quickly. It is reliable and grows more productive over the years. This plant is deer resistant and heat tolerant and is adaptable to different types of soil, such as clay, loamy or normal soil. It is an enthusiastic climber and can grow 20 to 30 feet in height and 6 feet in width. Sweet Autumn Clematis is an exceptional outdoor plant and makes an ideal border. It can also be guided over a fence or wound through a rose bush for a striking look.

This is a fantastic clematis! It has covered my privacy fence 8' high (plus the other side) and 16' wide. And the fragrance is outstanding!
Awesome plant

I've had this plant for several years. Very fragrant and fast growing. I prune mine to 12" in March and it grows back in no time. One of my favorites in our landscaping.

As a landscape designer, this is one of my favorite plants for adding late season bloom and fragrance. Establishes quickly, makes a huge mound in a season.

Tips for gardening in particularly hot, dry climates:

1. Water with a drip system whenever possible – soak the bed slowly and thoroughly to a depth of 10" to 12".

2. Watering deeply every 3 to 5 days is preferable to a shallow daily watering.

3. Water in the early morning, so foliage has time to dry.

4. Add a 2- to 3-inch layer of mulch or similar material to aid in water retention and help keep the roots cool during hot weather.
