Common name: Alpine Clematis
Plant Classification: Hardy climber
Packet Content(approx.): 10
This lovely reliable alpina variety flowers from March to May with hundreds of nodding, white-eyed, four-sepalled blue flowers before it produces its fantastic seed heads for the rest of the season after the flowers have gone. It is a very strong growing, amazingly tough variety that can withstand Arctic temperatures and will grow in places and countries where other clematis will just not survive!
Sowing advice: Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
