Attractive to Bees & Insects

Integrifolia 'Alba' with BeeThere are always lots of bees and insects around the nursery and here we have compiled a list of those clematis & climbers which are most attractive to them. We all know how important bees are for us and the eco-system so with these plants we can support wildlife and enjoy the garden too. 

Bees visit flowers to collect nectar and pollen, which they use as food for themselves and the larvae in their hives or nests. By moving from flower to flower, they are vital pollinators of many garden and wild flowers. Insect pollination is essential for the cropping of most fruits and some vegetables.

Thanks must go to Wim Snoeijer for his help in refining this list. You may like to see the Wim Snoeijer Collection of clematis.
