The colorful pinwheels of clematis make this twining vine a beloved garden plant. Bloom habits vary--some types like 'Mrs. Cholmondely' bloom on old wood, others like the popular x jackmanii bloom on new wood, and still others such as 'Henryii'--one of the oldest large-flowering clematis--bloom on both old and new wood. Growth rates and hardiness vary according to species, variety and cultivar. If given the conditions it prefers--shaded roots and sun-exposed tops--clematis typically grow to about 10 feet. Check with your local extension agent or nurseryman to determine which clematis varieties do best in your area.
