Clematis marmoraria

11th May 2013

A tiny species from rocky screes in New Zealand. Discovered on South Island in 1973 it immediately become popular with the growers of alpine plants . In recent years it has been used in hybridising to produce a range of compact climbers with green or cream flowers in early spring. Male and female flowers are borne on different plants.

For a while I grew it in a rock crevice in the Agave house but it is too dry for it up there.

It has done better in the Alpine house, I have a couple of clones so it occasionally produces seed.
