Features

notes

Very pretty with its mass of nodding flower heads, Clematis Alpina Willy has a whimsical appeal, best grown over a pergola or trained up a trellis. The flowers are pale pink and bell shaped, with a darker pink blush at the base, and are followed by fluffy seedheads. 

Insights

The spring flowering clematis have a very fine root system so do not fare well in waterlogged ground, in fact, they thrive in poor soil conditions, if free draining. Do not over fertilise as this will encourage foliage growth, at the expense of flowers.

Details

Flowers: April - May

Planting
  • Moist, well-drained soil
  • All aspects
  • Full sun or partial sunlight
Care
  • As Clematis like cool roots, try to position so that the roots will be shaded from the sun by another plant. Bear in mind the space they will need to climb and provide a suitable structure - trellis, wall, fence or other plant - to climb through
  • Can be a skin irritant and harmful to pets if ingested
  • Group 1 pruning
