I have tried in the past to grow clematis, I have done in several of the little darlings. I would like to try again but want to be successful this time.
I have quite sandy soil, I have amended an area for a new flower bed with aged horse manure, straw, and compost. The new bed should be ready to plant in by spring. I am building a 6X4 ft arbor over a path in the amended area. I want to plant a clematis on 2 sides, North & South exposure.
I would appreciate suggestions for a variety that would be hardy in my zone and resilient, given my clematis history.
I also read in another thread that some growers put several clematis on one trellis, would 4 be too many?
