Clematis cirrhosa var. purpurascens 'Freckles' is a much underrated evergreen self clinging climbing Clematis. It has lovely glossy dark green leaves that take on a bronzed tinge in the winter. This foliage provides a useful all year coverage. The highlight and real joy are the scented flowers! Which take centres stage from late autumn through winter and well into the following spring.Learn about this
