Clematis cirrhosa Jingle Bells

Clematis Jingle Bells

An evergreen Clematis originating from the Mediterranean, Clematis cirrhosa 'Jingle Bells' produces masses of small, sweetly scented, nodding, bell-shaped, creamy-white flowers during the late winter.

This wonderful climber with its delicately cut shiny green leaves will flower whether given some sun or a lot of sun and can be grown against a trellis, garden fence, wall, arches, pillars, pergolas or simply allowed to ramble away amongst the border with adequate support.

Clematis cirrhosa 'Jingle Bells' was raised by nurseryman Robin Savill of Pleshey, England. It was a chance seedling of Clematis cirrhosa 'Freckles'.
