What other vines play nicely with Clematis?

a2zmom(6a - nj)August 1, 2013

I planted 'Rebecca' two years ago - she's growing nicely but is still farly small. I was thinking of planting another vine on the same obelisk.

Would honeysuckle work or is that too vigorous? I'm looking for a vine that would also have red flowers.

Honeysuckle will quickly overwhelm your clematis, it is a thug. My Rebecca is not a large clematis either. Add another clematis but not a large one.

Hi luvmyclematis. Thanks for the response. I suspected that honeysuckle might be too vigorous.

Do you have any recommendations on something else with red flowers? Right now I have cardinal vine growing on the same obelisk, the only trouble with it is it doesn't flower until very late in the season.
