Nelly Moser Clematis - Knowledgebase Question

Fredericksburg, TX
Question by winchuck

I planted two Nelly Moser clematis last spring. They have coneflowers and hibiscus to cover their roots and they are mulched. They grew about 5 inches. Now they are coming up again and I would like to see them grow and blossom. They have eastern exposure with the roof blocking the sun from noon or so. What have I done wrong? What type of trellis should they have? I did not provide much of one last year, just stakes.

on side shoots arising from the previous year's growth, as well as in mid- and late summer at the tips of the current year's shoots. Therefore, in early spring, shorten all vines just to the where the first pair of strong buds are visible.

After you get your Nelly Mosers established, you'll want to try more of the wonderful clematis available!
