Cultivation Advice
This lovely group of clematis can make useful additions to your herbaceous borders, with their abundance of star-like flowers which have a hawthorn perfume, they will attract bees and butterflies to the garden.  
Whilst they can be grown in any aspect they will flower better and the perfume will be stronger if grown in a sunny, free draining position.
To look their best, the non-climbing stems of 'Aromatica', mandschurica & recta 'Purpurea' require support to hold them erect. The purply-bronze foliage of recta Purpurea is wonder in late spring and early summer.

Brilliant clematis

Beautiful scented scrambler..In its first year suffered from slug damage but I wove it up a nearby rose and now find that it's vigorous enough to hold its own. I cut it back hard in late winter. Keeps getting better!
