This is an awesome clematis she is about 6 years old here grows in morning sun and mid day
no afternoon sun..

grows in humid and hot summers in alabama.

when I planted her I dug out all clay dirt and disposed of it.
The hole was at least 2 foot wide and 2 foot deep...
I added bought sand
a large bag of very good potting soil
added one cup of lime
6 big handfuls of black kow compost...manure
This black kow compost does not burn..
it comes in a bag bought at Lowe's store.

I worked that together and then poured a bucket of water in the
bottom of the hole and let that settle...
then planted the early spring...

Clematis here are not sitting in wet ground in the winter months..

I do water each clematis slowly with 2 gallons of water each week during hot summer months
at the base of the vine..

This one gets pruned on March lst each year ...down to about 18 inches..

I would love to find this one again- it was from Loew's or HD - but it died after a few months.
