Taken from wikipedia's page at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C...

"The genus is composed of mostly vigorous, woody, climbing vines / lianas. The woody stems are quite fragile until several years old. Leaves are opposite and divided into leaflets and leafstalks that twist and curl around supporting structures to anchor the plant as it climbs. Some species are shrubby, while others, like C. recta, are herbaceous perennial plants. The cool temperate species are deciduous, but many of the warmer climate species are evergreen. They grow best in cool, moist, well-drained soil in full sun.

Clematis species are mainly found throughout the temperate regions of the northern hemisphere, rarely in the tropics. Clematis leaves are food for the caterpillars of some Lepidoptera species, including the Willow Beauty (Peribatodes rhomboidaria).

The timing and location of flowers varies; spring-blooming clematis flower on side shoots of the previous year's stems, summer/fall blooming clematis bloom only on the ends of new stems, and twice-flowering clematis do both."

Clematises are the perfect vines for the cottage garden. You can get spring flowering Clematises and summer flowering Clematises; large flower forms and small flower forms. Shades of purples, reds, pinks, and whites are the most common colors.

Lioba On May 11, 2017 Miscellaneous Event
I bought this clematis from Walmart a couple of years ago, May 5, 2015. I had no money to invest in my yearly perennial but I saw this dried up discounted plant and bought it.

I didn't do any research. I didn't know anything about it except what it should look like, generically. I planted it right away.

Every year I would check to see if it was alive. It was but I never saw any flowers. This year I looked early and it has grow exponentially. Flowers maybe this year!

I also created a better suited environment for it. Come to find out I didn't plant it in a bad spot.
