Early Risers

Early Risers

Spring is the season of rejuvenation and new beginnings after the long days of Winter. As the garden gradually awakens there are fresh discoveries to be enjoyed as Spring flowering plants reveal their beauty. Among the loveliest and most useful of these are early flowering clematis which are ideal for scrambling up obelisks or covering unsightly walls and fences and are perfect for free draining locations. They are easy to care for by pruning if required immediately after flowering. Here are a few of our favorites.

Clematis armandii ‘Snowdrift’

This vigorous evergreen climber is covered with clusters of perfumed star-shaped white flowers in March. Avoid exposed areas for best growth.

Clematis montana ‘Fragrant Spring’

With attractive light pink flowers and a lovely vanilla scent, this is an ideal climber to cloak a fence or scramble through a tree.

Clematis ‘Early Sensation’

Ideal for a sheltered location, this lovely climber has attractive evergreen foliage and beautiful white flowers. When grown alongside Clematis Avalanche for pollination it also produces the added bonus amazing ornamental seed heads!

Clematis alpina ‘Willy’

This late spring flowering Clematis is a cheeky climber with nodding pink bell shaped flowers. Ideal for growing up trellis or an archway.

Clematis macropetala ‘Blue Lagoon’

Semi-double blue flowers with silvery seed heads make this tough and slender climber an attractive choice. Idea for tumbling over a garden fence or wall.

Clematis alpine ‘Constance’

This medium-sized climber produces beautiful bright pink and white flowers in Spring and has a RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Clematis ‘Korean Brunette’

A deciduous climber producing dramatic purple-red bell shaped flowers. A versatile plant which is loved by bees and butterflies.
