Clematis x cartmanii 'Avalanche' (White Evergreen Clematis) - An evergreen Clematis with pure white single flowers with prominent yellow stamens in the center. The unique deeply-cut, leathery, green leaves, which are a very attractive feature when the plant is in full bloom, are nearly hidden by the profusion of flowers in early to mid spring. Flowers are borne on previous season's stems. Plant on a fence or trellis where stems can grow 12-15 feet with support ,or use as a groundcover. If used to trail over and down a slope, it can look like an avalanche of white flowers. Plant in full sun to light shade and water regularly spring through summer. Hardy to 10 to 15 F. A plant patent is applied for this plant. This is a selected seedling from a cross made at Blackthorn Nursery, England by renowned plantsman Robin White. The pollen parent was Clematis paniculata and the seed parent was Clematis marmoraria - both evergreen species from New Zealand. The name C. cartmanii honors the respected botanist Joe Cartman who first produced this cross from C. paniculata and C. marmoraria. The original registered name for this plant is Clematis x cartmanii 'Blaaval'.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in containers at our nursery, in our own garden and in other gardens. We also appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or have additional cultural tips that would aid others growing Clematis 'Avalanche' .
