Sweet Autumn Clematis is a species separate from the large-flowered types, and equally famous in its own right. This is the large, strong-growing vine that covers fences and arbors and produces a striking, billowing cloud of fragrant flowers in late summer and fall. If you need screening along a high fence, or have an arbor as gateway to your garden, this is the plant you need.

Sweet Autumn is a type 3 Clematis. Clematis in this group are later season bloomers and flower from buds developed in the current growing season. They should be cut back hard in late winter or early spring to stimulate a large flush or new growth.
