the picture to not do justice to the beauty of the blossoms but it took 2 years of careful tending to achieve flowering but worth it
Planting & Care
Plant your Armandii Snowdrift Clematis in a spot that receives full sun but is safe from cold, dry winds. If you need to plant your Snowdrift in the shade, make sure the shade is open and warm. Shade over the roots can be helpful but not necessary. Plant in a hole that is twice as wide but only as deep as the root ball. Do not over-cover the top of the root. Water to settle.
Watering: This vine can tolerate wet or dry conditions. Be sure to water the vine weekly in its young life to ensure proper growth. After a couple of years, you only need to water the tree during very dry spells. Avoid overwatering if you live in a humid climate.
Pruning: Pruning is not necessary and can inhibit growth if overdone. Only prune overcrowded or tangled areas in late winter.
Toxicity: This plant is toxic to dogs if ingested.
