Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Well known for being a rather beautiful, reliable and robust variety, this alpina Clematis requires virtually no pruning and copes well even in exposed areas. The majestic sky blue blooms look more vivid in contrast to the pure white stamens, which form an abundance of fluffy seedheads come summer. Perfect for growing against a sunny wall or as part of patio feature, Clematis ‘Frances Rivis' is a lovely addition to any garden. Height: 3m (9'). Spread: 1.5m (5'). Pruning group: 1.

Feed and water frequently throughout the growing season. In autumn or spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant. When pruning group 1 Clematis, remember that they flower on the previous year's growth, so little very little pruning is required. In summer, after flowering, remove any damaged or dead stems entirely. The remaining stems can then be pruned back to a pair of healthy buds.
Grow Clematis in sheltered sunny borders in any moist, well drained soil. Clematis plants particularly dislike dry soils so add plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve moisture retention in summer. Plant clematis with the top of the rootball positioned 7.5cm (3”) below soil level, to encourage new shoots to form from the base of the plant. Be sure to provide the twining stems with an appropriate support, such as trellis or wires attached to fences and pergolas. Alternatively grow clematis up freestanding plant frames in patio containers. When planting in containers, use a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3.
