Will Avalanche Clematis grow in zone 7? Alternatives?

Laurenp17May 5, 2014

Looking for a pairing for my Josephine that will stay green through the winter months on my wire trellis. I thought Avalanche but other forums say it is fussy. Anyone with any luck? Many thanks.

Very fussy. In fact, fussy enough not to overwinter well in my very mild Z8 (almost Z9) climate. I would not consider any of the cartmanii hybrids appropriate for anything lower than zone 8.

I agree with gardengal48, I've lost them here and not trying again.
