Would clematis work on the north side of house near front side of house? Gets sun and shade. What are the pros and cons of clematis? Was thinking of putting an azalea on the
corner and clematis vine next to it.

Clematis have only a few requirements: the roots need to be cool and the tops need to be in the sun. They thrive in rich, porous soil, and need to be watered and fertilized regularly during the growing season. Apply a complete liquid fertilizer monthly (follow label directions for dilution). There are many types of clematis - early, mid-summer and late summer bloomers so choose the type that will flower when you want color in the landscape. Azaleas and clematis make happy garden companions. Enjoy your landscape!
