Scott from Spring Hill Nursery gives advice on caring for clematis, a beautiful plant that is easy to grow. Clematis blooms in late summer or early fall, and thrives in almost any conditions. It does fine in either full sun or a partly shaded location, but you should use mulch around the roots to keep them cool.
After planting clematis, it should be watered thoroughly every week for the first few seasons. Pruning is very important and it needs to be done right to get the best growth and blooms. The right time to prune depends on the variety of clematis, so be sure to check the instructions that came with the plant.
