|My husband is finishing up putting in a large trellis by our pool. It is over 30 ft long and about 3 feet wide. I bought two summer blooming clematis (candida and Ramona) to climb up the ends. A friend suggested putting sweet autumn clematis on it too. I'm wondering if the other clematis will still grow and bloom if I include the sweet autumn. I do love the idea of seeing it all in bloom in the fall but I'm not totally convinced yet.
I'm open to other ideas of what to grow there too!

|Just my 2 cents worth...
I have grown the Autumn Clematis and, seeing what type of structure you have built (wow ), I would go with the proper Clematis plants, not the Autumn Clematis which makes lots of greenery/leaves/vines and has tiny flowers. You will get more bang for your buck with a large-flowered type. I am especially partial to the big white blooms of the Henryi variety, but I also like the look of the purple-flowered types.
Please check out our green pages for Brushwood Nurseries. They have lots to choose from and are good people.

|Wisteria would look nice.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
