Wisteria with a clematis?

Lilyfinch z7 mid tnJuly 12, 2010

I am planning on training blue moon wisteria on my arbor (not the invasive kind) and i thought a nice clem mixed in with it would be pretty. maybe a pale pink or white? Something vigorous so it dosnt get lost in the wisteria, and maybe smaller flowered to contrast the large wisteria blooms? Any suggestions or even your thoughts on this plan , id appriciate it!

I have tried growing Henryi into my Chinese wisteria tree for the past few years. It's been disappointing because Henry, isn't vigorous enough. I've just bought Betty Corning to try instead - that one is certainly vigorous and I think the blue dangling bells might be the better look. We'll see....

Clematis usually don't play well with others, they suffer when they have competition. Betty Corning is a good strong one though and may be fine.
