Anna I found out it will probably be next week before I get it. Thumbs down The lady hasn't called me back. I'll probably just put it in the flowerbed by my porch. It gets sun until 3pm then it's shade the rest of the day.

I think it still might be better to put in a pot...even if it is a plastic one atleast until the fall. That way you can keep it in the shade. You know what our summers are like. Otherwise you will have to be nursing it all summer. If you plant it, you will have to mulch it very well, and hopefully it is in a area where the roots will stay cool

Ok I'll follow your advice Anna. In Winter do you think it would be safe in an unheated shed?

I'm glad because I was worried I'd have to overwinter it indoors. Thumbs up

Don't you get tired of bringing plants in? From your avatar you probably have a garage full of plumeria

I do lol. I have to bring in 100 houseplants and every year I try to bring a few at a time indoors but a surprise freeze or frost ruins my plans. Rolling on the floor laughing I've downsized with my plumerias thankfully.

It is possible to grow them in containers. Can't think of the website off hand but someone in Australia (HOT!) who has an amazing container collection.


I was thinking of this grower in South Africa.

Thanks everyone for the great advice. I don't know when I'll be able to get the clematis now, but I was so tempted to get a jackmanii root from Home Depot yesterday.

HD clems, in those green plastic bags, grow very well for me. I start them indoors, cut them back when they have a few sets of leaves, and they go outside in mid May.

Well an update on the clematis. The local gardener said she would dig up the clematis and pot it up for me as soon as it dries out. Here is a picture of the main plant that mine came from.

Please post a photo when you get it and don't be worried if it has been cut back to a foot tall. That will just mean it will be more eager to grow. Give it compost, bone meal, manure and a drink of Epsom Salt to get it started and mulch it very well. I'm excited for you!

Thanks Arlene, I'll definitely post photos once I get the plant. I bought some potting soil that has compost and pine bark fines that I'll use as a top dressing. I need to get some bone meal, I also have plenty of epsom salt. I need to get another small trellis. Thumbs up
