Grow in fertile, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun to part shade. Avoid extremely hot areas. Prefers a sunny location but appreciates some afternoon shade. Roots need a cool environment and therefore should be shaded (preferably with perennials or annuals) and/or mulched. Important to supply adequate nutrients and water to support the flush of growth in spring and early summer. Soil should be kept uniformly moist. No pruning is required, however a light pruning in early spring before new growth appears is advisable.
Profuse, 2" white flowers cover this small-flowered clematis vine in early summer. Bloom appears primarily on the previous year's growth.

This vine can be trained to climb a wall, trellis, fence, arbor, porch or lamppost. May also be planted to sprawl over and through large shrubs. Provides excellent, long-lasting summer color.
