A very welcome sight in April is Clematis montana in bloom. It is one of the early flowering clematis. A vigorous deciduous climber, in late spring it is covered with a mass of small blooms for about four weeks. The flowers are white or pink, four-petalled, with prominent yellow anthers. This plant can be spotted if you are traveling around Ireland at this time of year, It can be seen rambling up hay sheds and fences and over the roof of buildings. Keep an eye out for it.
