Learn how to grow and prune Clematis to produce big, beautiful flowers all summer long with this Clematis care guide that has all of the information you need.
I have come to the realization that I am a little obsessed with Clematis.
I didn’t actually know how obsessed until I started taking pictures for this post. There are 25 different varieties of Clematis growing in my garden at the moment! And I’m not ruling out getting some more 🙂
However, I think I’m justified. All you have to do is look at those beautiful blooms to know why I have so many of them.
But that’s not the only reason. Clematis is a very versatile and easy to grow vine. It comes in many colors, sizes and bloom times. There are varieties with large flowers, small flowers, single or double petals, bell-shaped or tubular blooms. Some varieties will only grow to be 2 – 3 feet tall, while others can cover the side of a garage.
And in almost all cases, the clematis vines are not invasive, so you can grow them through other bushes without worrying about killing the plants (I do have experience with a couple of exceptions which I will tell you about later).
It has so many redeeming qualities that I think should be a part of everyone’s garden (which is why clematis is on my all-time favorite perennials list).
