1- Winter Beauty – Clematis Urophylla


This ever gren and fragrant clematis not only survive the winter but also blooms from December to February.  The large green leaves, elegant white bell shape flowers and nice fragrance are the reasons why this clematis is at the top of short list for top 3 climbers to grow in winter. Originally, I planted my Winter Beauty along with 4 different type of clematis. I knew that this will not bloom in the summer but since its large leaves stays ever green, I thought it can support other clematises and it did. I just fall in law with it when bell shaped, white flowers emerged in December where there were hardly anything green in my garden.

It is not a coincidence that both the clematis and honeysuckle are called as Winter Beauty thanks to their flowers and leaves that stay green through the winter.
