Description / Clematis Sweet Autumn

The captivating Clematis Sweet Autumn is a perennial marvel that enchants with its late summer to early fall flowering. Brimming with grace, this prolific bloomer unveils billowy masses of 1-inch, snow-white flowers imbued with delightful hints of sugar, honey, and vanilla. Their sweet fragrance serves as a magnet for bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, transforming your garden into a buzzing oasis. As flowers wane, they give way to elegant plume-like seed heads, casting a silvery sheen that adds allure to the landscape.

This deciduous soil types, including chalk, clay, and loams, regardless of pH levels. Optimal placement is crucial—ensure ample sunlight for the leaves while keeping the roots shaded and cool, either through low-growing evergreen shrubs or generous mulching. In humid climates, a touch of afternoon shade offers respite. Vigilance in drainage and protection from strong winds foster optimal growth. Bonus: it's deer resistant!

As a Group 3 late-flowering clematis, Sweet Autumn clematis blooms on new wood in late summer and fall, regenerating each year from ground level. Prune rigorously in late winter, removing dead or weak stems and facilitating new growth. Come early summer, trim back to large buds to encourage a second flush of flowers, without deadheading. Embrace its versatility in arbors, pergolas, trellises, walls, fences, borders, beds, and containers, transforming any space into a botanical haven.

Review by Evelyn T
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
Review by Jacinda
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.
