Clematis alpina ‘Constance’
at Digging Dog

Clematis

Simple and beautiful, Clematis includes over 300 named cultivars and even more wild species than the rose. Our selections offer opulent blossoms, attractive, carefree foliage, and ornamental seed heads, in exchange for a minimum of attention. Use them to cover just about every stump and dead tree, as well as on trellises, arbors, pergolas, walls and tall shrubs. They prefer to be planted slightly deep in cool, well drained soil, with mulch or a ground cover to shade their feet; provide a support and let them climb.

Medium Band.

Clematis alpina ‘Constance’ full sun  partial shade

Englishwoman Kathleen Goodman selected this hardy AGM winner as a welcome, easily cultivated improvement over its parent Clematis alpina ‘Ruby’. Abundant nodding blooms garnish thin twining stems and attractive deciduous leaflets, which shape a reliable small-statured habit. With charm to spare, the deep rosy pink bell-shaped flowers showcase a prominent outer layer of long central, petal-like sterile white stamens, followed by playful swirls of eye-catching fuzzy seed heads. Ideal for tight spaces plus intimate garden settings, a north-facing wall or patio container, ‘Constance’ delivers moderate growth and a floriferous early spring gala in well-draining sunny or brightly shaded sites.

Blooms April-May

Size: 6' 0"–8' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 4.

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
