What to plant in front of clematis?
I am planting a Jackmanni Clematis this weekend and am looking for what to plant in front of it to keep the roots cool? I need something that is not too large as I have a small butterfly garden on the other side of the patio that I would like to be able to see. What kinds of perinnels or shrubs do you guys plant in front of your clematis? Thanks for any help.
