ABSTRACT
ALPINE CLEMATIS (Clematis alpina) C. alpina, one of my favourite clematis, is blooming this time of year with flowers that look like hanging goats' ears. It comes from the Alps and is completely hardy so makes a good climber for an exposed situation or an east wall. The best known alpina is 'Francis Rivis' but my favourite is 'Pamela Jackman', which has the most wonderful deep blue flowers in spring. These grow from the leaf axils (between the leaf stalk and the plant stem) of the previous year's growth so wait to prune it until after it's finished flowering, and then do so only to contain it.
