Clematis integrifolia 'Bells' / Solitary Clematis / Seeds

Clematis integrifolia 'Bells' is a lovely dwarf non-climbing herbaceous perennial Clematis for the border or pots.  Plants have blue and rose flowers throughout the summer.  The flowers mature into attractive wispy seed heads over winter.


The plants grow to a height of about 50cm, and flowers face the sun.  Plant in sun or part-shade in well drained soil.  They may need staking, especially if grown in part shade.  They look best planted in groups. 

 

Pack of 20 seeds.  Sow spring through to autumn.  Plants often flower in the first year if sown early.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the label.

Sow

Sow in spring to autumn.  Sow the seeds in a tray of moist seed compost.  Cover lightly with compost.  Germination takes 3 -4 weeks at 18-24C.  If there is no germination place the tray in a fridge for 2-4 weeks at 3-5C and then back into the warmth.  Plant into pots when seedlings can be handled and then out the garden after hardening off.  Seed sown early may produce flowers in the first year.

Grow Stake plants grown in more exposed gardens or in shadier positions.  Cut back plants to near base level in autumn or early spring.  Plants start growing again in spring and flower on the current years growth.   Semi-ripe cuttings can be taken in summer before cutting back in autumn.
