Clematis for pergola questions
I would like to grow some vines on a pergola that is about 10 feet W x 12 feet D and is 12 feet high. I was thinking evergreen type for year-round coverage and to minimize the need to prune. Is it correct that Armandii and Montana's are type one evergreens? Can I mix the two?
I believe Armandii and Montana have somewhat limited color choices and I was hoping for more color. Should I consider type two clems? What are the disadvantages to going with type two clems? Would they have brown vines in the winter months? Do they need at least some pruning?
Lastly, can I mix type two with Armandii or Montana?
I live in Atlanta, zone seven. Thanks in advance for any advice!
