About Clematis Alpina 'Constance':

Clematis Alpina 'Constance' gives you a fabulous explosion of abundant, bright pink nodding flowers for spring. The seed heads also make a delightful display when they turn silvery through the summer.

This tough little climber is easy to grow and can reach a height of 3m. It will be happy in any aspect and most soils, except acidic. It doesn't need pruning, although some trimming will encourage strong new growth. If bright pink is not your thing, take a look at other clematis in our collection.

Great for your garden:

This medium-sized clematis grows to a maximum height of around 3 metres, 'Constance' will be happiest in alkaline or neutral soil. It will do well in full sun or partial shade in any aspect. If in full sun, do ensure the base and roots are shaded and kept cool with other plants or pebbles.

Clematis look fabulous up a house or garden wall, along a trellis, or grown over a garden gateway, post or arch. For a romantic look, and to add colour, you can grow it through a hedge or shrub, or used as ground cover. This deciduous climber grows densely so it can be used to cover posts or for scrambling over fences, tree stumps or rocks.

  • Look out for:

    Trivia:

    Clematis Alpina 'Constance' was raised in 1986 by Mrs K Goodman in Hull. The attractive plant was named for the actress Constance Cummings, who was a family friend of the raiser. Constance was celebrated for her beauty as well as her exceptional acting talent.
