Clematis Mandshurica fragrance

true_blue(Mtl Can Zone 4b)October 15, 2012


I was wondering if anyone has Clematis Mandshurica and can comment and describe the fragrance.

Is it the wafting type fragrance?

Or is it the shove your nose in the flower type?

Any other info regarding this clematis will be appreciated.

Thanks a lot,

This was my first year growing this clematis, but it did bloom for me. It certainly was not overly fragrant, but was really pretty.

Thanks pmermakov for responding and the beautiful pictures. The flowers reminds me of summersnow "Paul Farges" clematis.

Can you describe the fragrance, like what does it remind you of?

From my research, it seems that there is a direction correlation between fragrance and the age of clematis. The older it is the fragrant becomes more pronounced :)

Also, probably by the next year, when it grows as tall as 1 meter (3.3 ') it will start climbing.
