Clematis near large clump of daylilies ?

Too many clematis and too little space so am wondering if it is ok to plant close to a large clump of daylilies or is there too much competition for roots and water?
Long question.

Hi Lois, I would not say there would be too much competition. The DL roots are shallow; the Clematis roots are deep. They have similar requirements: both need excellent drainage. I would go for it! Maybe, they would need some extra fertilizing during the growing season.
