Many people who have trellises or large fences think about planting something tall there, but don't like
the hard work and struggle, because, well, theirs to much work. Clematis is a tall flower that can be wrapped
around a trellis or fence, and don't take much time, or work, to plant. You just dig a small hole, and place the
seeds inside. If you want to grow more than one bunch of Clematis, then space the holes about thirty inches
apart. When watering your Clematis plant, be sure not to water it until it's wet, make sure it's damp, because you
don't want to drown your flower.
Clematis bloom in various colors: white, blue, violet, yellow, pink, red, and purple, and grow, in
height, between six and thirty, and grow about six inches wide. These plants also have shallow roots and, they
bloom in the early spring and early fall, and summer. Clematis grow in a full sun, and well drained soil and
If you are using any fertilizers with your Clematis, then use an all purpose fertilizer, each month. Also, be
sure to stay away from Mulch. Mulch, in a way, is kind of like a sponge, it helps soak up water and keep the soil
moist. The reason you don't want to use Mulch, is because of the fact that the Clematis can suffer and die from
wilt and fungus disease.
Also, when the Clematis plant is done, it produces fruit. By the way. Did you know that the Clematis plant
was originated in North America, Asia, and Europe.
