Clematis is a flowering vine that is very popular in gardens and around homes in many sections of the United States. They are hardy plants that enjoy at least six hours of full sunshine per day.
Plant your clematis in well-drained soil and mulch well. Clematis require lots of nutrition, so feed often with compost material or fertilizer.
Clematis make excellent covers for arbors and trellises. They also make very attractive flowering vines for covering up a utility pole or porch post.
For a simple, yet elegant garden attraction, you can set a post in the middle of your garden for your clematis to climb, then surround it with lots of other colorful flowers!
