About Clematis 'Flammula':

Clematis 'Flammula' is a heavily-scented vigorous climber. Masses of small white star-shaped blooms smother the vine from August to October, filling the air with a sweet almond fragrance.

Flowers are followed by attractive silvery-grey seed heads. It's a tough variety - it will cope with an exposed, windy position, part shading, and unlike most clematis can even tolerate dry soil. It won't be happy in coastal conditions.

'Flammula' is a fully hardy deciduous perennial in the UK.

See our full Clematis collection for other varieties.

Great for your garden:

'Flammula' will put up with almost anything you can throw at it (apart from water logging) and reward you with an abundance of flower and fragrance in late summer.

It quickly covers walls and fences and if there is no supporting structure, it will climb on itself. Looks fabulous rambling through trees or paired with evergreens - the white flowers are shown off to fabulous effect.

'Flammula' characteristics.

  • Flower colour: Pure white or creamy flowers
  • Flower shape: Star-shaped

Look out for:

All clematis can be affected by Clematis slime flux, a bacterial infection of damaged tissue that can kill large specimens almost overnight. Can be pruned out if spotted early.

Aphids and caterpillars are fond of the young shoots.

Follow planting instructions to minimize the risk of clematis wilt.


'Flammula' is a Latin word meaning little flame or banner. Introduced to England from Southern Europe in 1590, it is also known as Fragrant Virgin's Bower. Like all clematis the flowers have no petals - the petal-like structures are actually sepals.
