Early flowering Clematis
Early flowering Clematis bloom around April and May time.
They include several species of Clematis: shaggy alpinas and macropetalas (similar in appearance to the wild Old Man's Beard), and the vigorous, small-flowered montanas.
No need to prune, but if they need tidying or untangling from their surroundings cut them after flowering time.
We have also included winter-flowering cirrhosa Clematis. Compact and evergreen, these can be cut back in springtime.
The cirrhosa, alpina and macropetala Clematis are all suitable for growing in large planters; as they are so vigorous the montanas are much better in the ground.
Climbers are hungry plants so we recommend the addition of composts, manures and/or fertilisers.
If growing climbers up a wall or fence, try to plant them at least a foot away so there is room for the roots to spread and they are away from the ‘rain shadow’.
They will need support - trellis and netting are ideal. They can also be grown up arches, pergolas, obelisks, trees or large shrubs.
