April Plant Of The Month: Clematis Alpina

The alpine clematis is strong growing and very hardy. An easy clematis to cultivate, it needs no pruning, just a little tidy up after flowering. At its best now, there are cultivars in many beautiful colours, and with pretty shaped flowers which hang like bells. C. alpina ‘Ruby’ is a good example. Clematis alpina will grow in virtually any aspect and can even be planted in a large pot.
