Here is my pic of sweet autumn clematis. Like "Jack in the Beanstalk," this extraordinarily vigorous, fast growing vine will top 20 in one season. It is unusually late blooming for a Clematis, bearing clouds of fragrant, 1", star-shaped, white flowers Summer thru Fall. The sweet vanilla fragrance is wonderful & not overpowering, bringing back the sweet scents of Spring. After the flowers fade, silvery, plume-like seed heads decorate the vine. "Sweet Autumn Clematis" blooms on current seasons wood.

RE: sweet autumn clematis

This wonderful clematis just appeared in my yard!! I am in New Jersey. I did not plant it. It is coming out from under a euonymous and forsythia. I have stuck a small trellis under it and I see that yours grew twenty feet in a season so I guess I will be getting a larger trellis. I would be afraid to transplant the main one but there is a smaller one nearby that might work. Can you tell me when I might transplant the little one? I assume when dormant.
