If you’re a beginning gardener, then growing clematis is for you. It is extremely easy to be successful for this climbing “queen” of plants. There are many types of clematis available including: Henryi, General Sikorski, Jackmanii and Comtesse de Bouchard. Many local garden stores and big box stores offer these and many more varieties!

Clematis vines can grow to be 10-12 feet in length, so you will need to take this into consideration when choosing a spot to grow one. Ideally, you will have a partially sunny spot to grow your new vine. Sometimes clematis can take 1-2 years to start blooming, so you will want to buy a plant in a gallon container to make sure you get an established plant.
Clematis vines are happiest when they have something to grow on like a small trellis or arbor. Because these leaf stems are minimal in size, anything that’s more than about 1/2 inch wide is too wide for the leaf stem grab. The easiest things for a clematis to grab onto, are twine, fishing line, wire, thin branches, wooden dowels or steel rods. The more grabbing opportunities you offer, the better!
