A vigorous climber, Clematis 'Duchess of Albany' can easily cover a support of 3m tall once established. It produces a finely textured, light-green foliage making a beautiful backdrop for masses of contrasting, bell-shaped, deep-pink flowers up to 5cm across. The flowers give way to attractive silky seed heads later in the season providing a wonderfully long season of interest.

Pruning will help keep your clematis vines healthy.  Pruning the dense tangle of stems opens the remaining shoots to air and light which encourages healthy growth and reduces the incidence of rot and disease.

This variety belongs to Pruning Group 3 and will flower in summer on new growth from the current growing season. Pruning of group 3 Clematis is needed to prevent your plant ending up as a tangled mess of old and new growth and the blooms only appearing on some areas and not appearing in others. Prune your Group 3 clematis back to around 30cm above the ground or to a set of healthy, strong buds close to ground in early spring.
