Nepal Clematis Overview
Clematis napaulensis is a climbing plant in the Ranunculaceae family of buttercups. It produces foliage divided into 3-5 oval to lance-shaped leaflets and leaves are shed during the summer when this species is dormant. Flowers are hanging, creamy-white in colour and appear during the winter. Flowers are notable for their long stamens, bearing red-purple anthers. These lead onto fluffy, feathery seed heads which are dispersed by the wind.
Common problems with Nepal Clematis
May suffer damage from insects such as aphids and caterpillars which target young growth. Flowers may be nibbled by earwigs. Could be affected by Clematis slime flux and this species is more tolerant of Clematis wilt compared to most others in this genus.
How to propagate Nepal Clematis
