Clematis 'Constance'

alpine clematis (group 1)

5 year guarantee RHS award of garden merit
3 lt pot (60cm cane) £23.99

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, neutral soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Semi-double, deep purplish-red, bell-shaped flowers, followed by fluffy seedheads in summer and mid-green leaves. This alpine clematis is a particularly free-flowering variety. An attractive choice for covering a north- or east-facing wall, it occasionally produces a second, smaller flush of flowers in summer.

  • Garden care: No routine pruning is necessary. If the spread of the plant needs to be restricted prune immediately after flowering, cutting back overlong shoots to healthy buds. Apply a slow-release balanced fertiliser and a mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant in early spring.
