Remember that clematis we tried to keep tied up the trunk of the maple tree a few years ago? And it wouldn’t stay tied up? So, I just let it creep around on the ground like groundcover. Well, there are now 20-30 rooted pieces that I am going to transplant to the fence by Teresa’s, about 1′ apart, and let them run on the fence. I gave away about 15 rooted plantlets to Michael and Michelle, behind us, this past spring. They planted them to run as groundcover on their creek bank. Mine aren’t blooming for me anymore. Do you think they will like the extra sun on the opposite/south fence? Do you have any experience growing clematis? Mother gave me a clematis root ball about 10 years ago – a different clematis from the one in this picture. It had a lot of 8′ vine foliage on it. I clipped it back and planted it. I moved it this spring, to a spot that gets more water and stays wet. Now it is finally putting out vine-style growth again. It never did before – it just barely stayed alive. I think it blooms white, but I don’t know what kind it is.
