Re: Re: Clematis


My bush clematis (NA natives) do "flop", (I think 'bush' is a misnomer), but I think of them as ground covers and enjoy them anyway -- as long as I keep an eye out for blister beetles. They will defoliate a clematis in 24 hours (although I have never seen them go for a large flowered variety.

Mine was floppy too, but the supports helped. I also think pinching to
encourage branching might help to make the base thicker and stronger. I
am hoping to remember to test this theory this year.

Should have enough moisture, although last year it probably had too much:(

One of them was supposed to be a bush type... just kinda flopped/laid around
and I was not impressed.

Donna, do you have adequate soil moisture in that location. I always
place a
black plastic landscape pot (bottom cut out) screwed down in the soil
around
the base of the vine & fill with shredded cedar. This keeps the soil cool
&
moist.
Have you tried any of the non-vining type?
