The long, stems are cloaked in leathery, dark green foliage with a glossy sheen. New growth emerges bronze making a pretty contrast with its early blooms.

Feed and water frequently throughout the growing season. This variety of clematis flowers in early spring on the previous year's growth. Pruning should be undertaken in summer, after flowering. When pruning Clematis armandii, remove any damaged or dead stems entirely before cutting back the remaining stems to a pair of healthy buds to maintain the plant within it's alloted space. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the plant in order to protect the roots and conserve soil moisture.
