    Design IdeasClematis is perhaps the most beautiful of all vines for training onto vertical treillage. This breathtaking beauty belongs in courtyards and around outdoor living spaces where the blossoms can be enjoyed close up. They are gorgeous spiraled up wood posts and classical Greek style columns. These plants are also draped over walls and fences in a mass of color. In the Old World they can be found trained into the branches of long dead trees for natural arbor. They are also used as ground covers to cascade down banks and slopes, and to dangle off retaining wall edges.

  • Care
    Care Information
    Thrives in well-drained, slightly alkaline soil, with roots sheltered and top growth in the sun. Mulch soil surface to conserve moisture. Water regularly during first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system; less frequently when established. Feed consistently beginning in spring. Prune spent flowers to promote repeat bloom. Provide trellis or arbor support.
    Light Needs:
    <strong>Partial Sun / Partial Shade</strong>: These two terms are often used interchangeably to mean 3-6 (or 4-6) hours of sunlight each day. However, there is a difference.
<strong>Partial shade</strong> typically means the plants will appreciate a more gentle exposure such as the weaker morning or early afternoon sun, with the emphasis on providing the minimum needed shade and sheltering from intense late afternoon sun. <strong>Partial sun</strong> typically means the plants <u>need</u> some direct sun, so the emphasis is on meeting the required minimum hours of sunlight, with filtered sunlight or shade the balance of the day.
Both are best with shelter from the harshest late afternoon sun. This shade could be provided by a structure, a wall, larger plants or  tree(s).
