Plant of the Month for December, 2017

 (Klem –uh-tiss  AL-pine-a)

General Information:

Clematis alpina is a very hardy, early flowering vine that adds a great splash of color in your spring garden and then goes on to make interesting seed heads in late summer. As seen in the picture below, I grow it in a planter, in zone 5 and leave it outside all year. You can also plant it in the garden and just about forget about it. It doesn't need to be pruned, and it will not take over most trees and shrubs the way some larger clematis do.
