Type 2 in SF bay area - Will Niobe and President work for me?

Posted by GWlolo 9b/ Sunset 15 (My Page) on

I ordered several clematis from Silver star and Niobe and President were in the list. They are wondering if Type 2 clematis like Niobe and President will do well for me here? I am south of San Francisco in the peninsula area. It is somewhat cooler here than San Jose but I am in the plains and do not get fog like the hills. Please advise.

Sure they will......not sure why you think they wouldn't. Just an FYI - very deep colored clems like Niobe can bleach out or fade if planted in intense sun. I might site so she receives afternoon shade.
