future clemtis site?
I have never grown clematis before but would love to start. We built our home 3 years ago and I have been working hard in the yard since. In the pics you can see the beigh vinyl fence, this is what I would like to hide as much as possible with some clematis/climbing roses. If I put wire supports in front of the fence would it work? The backyard faces west. On top of the rock wall gets sun until 2-3pm, but due to our high elevation in utah the sun is very intense and makes the yard very hot. I have a good drip system up there on a timer. I already have various perennials growing but I have about 1 foot behind them would that be enough room to start clemtis? How well do these hold up to wind? Snow?
Then would anyone have a suggestion which I should plant? I am looking for the 4-8 foot due to space, wine red, blue(ish), pinks but no purple if I can help it. I have enough purple in the yard already when the other plants bloom.
Thank you for listening and look forward to any advise.
