Sweet Autumn Clematis

Every year I look forward to the blooming of the Sweet Autumn Clematis, the vine my grandmother called Country Clematis. It twines itself around the posts and porch rails on the corner of our front porch, spreads onto other shrubs, and emits a lovely fragrance. The small delicate flowers open in August and bloom into the early days of September.

  2. this is a favourite clematis (?C. terniflora) – I smelt it once long before I saw it in a London garden and it has remained on my wishlist ever since – thank you for highlighting it –

    1. This is the only flower out of all the flowers in our garden that has such a lovely scent. Even our heirloom roses don’t have much of a scent.
