Don't fuss, this is an atragene seedling of Jim Sullivans.  Jim lives in Saskatoon, Canada.

Alpina clematis are Atragene Group and not evergreen, if you scratch the stems near the growing tip and it is green then your plant is alive and well

It is growing through an early flowering rosa pimpinellifolia in the front garden here, after the rose finishes the clematis kicks in, flowers through until September, just chop the old stems off in mid-February, never water or feed it, a REAL clematis.  It will grow anywhere, and the flowers are scented.

Absolutely beautiful, very useful to know about the manure. I'll try that on mine (which however are garden grown). I'm just now trying some new sorts of Clematis diversifolia and am hoping they're not slugged to death... will post pictures if they do well.


See original post

 Which have you got, please ?

Best clematis for pots?

Posted: 04/02/2018 at 09:48

Any of the Viticella Group, Viorna Group, Texensis Group, Integrifolia Group, are perfect for large pots, I would not recommend the clematis armandii.

Are my clematis dead?

The Group 3's are deciduous and will send new stems from the crown in Spring, they are not dead.
