Plant details

One of the best double-flowering clematis, 'Arctic Queen' produces its creamy white blooms from early summer to early autumn. Its compact habit makes it ideal for smaller gardens and growing in containers. To prune, remove any dead or weak stems in late winter or early spring and cut remaining stems back to the highest pair of strong-growing buds. To encourage blooms to cover the whole plant, train the stems so that they are evenly spaced on their support. As new growth appears in mid-spring, train this to fill any gaps. Plant in a sheltered position that is not north-facing.
