Most clematis require full sun to grow best (six plus hours of direct sun per day) but there are also some that will grow in shade or partial shade. Clematis typically like their heads in the sun, feet in the shade. A site with an eastern exposure ( morning sun only) or one with dappled shade at midday is ideal for most clematis. Because they pre- fer a cool, moist root zone, a thick layer of organic mulch such as wood chips, shred- ded leaves, or compost will help retain moisture and keep the soil temperatures cooler. Shading the root zone is also a good way to reduce heat and water loss. You can accomplish this by planting perennials or annuals near. by or placing a large planter where it will shade the base of the clematis. Clematis can live for many years, so it's worth taking your time on soil preparation. Prepare a large area by applying a layer of aged compost or manure, rotted leaves, or peat moss and incorporating it into the soil. Dig a hole and plant the clematis with the crown 2 to 4 inches below soil level. Clematis don't like root dis- turbance so be careful when removing them from a con- tainer to plant them. Once planted, fill in with soil, firm and water well to settle soil around the root system. Both newly planted and mature clematis need evenly moist soil. Always keep them watered well during hot, dry weather. Clematis are heavy feeders, so give them lots of compost or fertilize monthly with an all-purpose plant food. There are three methods applied to pruning clematis depending on the time of the year the plant flowers. Clematis that bloom early in the season (Group A) pro- duce flowers on old wood so these should be pruned as soon as possible after bloom- ing so the new stems will have enough time to make flower buds for the following year. Group B are large-flow- ered hybrids that bloom in mid-June on short stems from the previous season's growth and often again in ]ate summer on new growth. It's best to prune in early spring by removing dead and weak stems and then cut back the tips of most of the stems to the first pair of large plump green buds. You can cut a few stems back to 2 to 3 feet from the ground so that some late season flow- ers aro on the lower sections of the plant. Group C clema- tis bloom on current season's growth and are the easiest vines to prune. In the spring, cut back all the stems to 12- 18 inches above the ground. Some clematis in group A are alpina, Buford, Pamela Jackman, Pink Flamigo and Willy. Clematis in group B include, Fireworks, Lemon Chiffon, Nelly Moser, Barbara Jackman, Arctic Queen, Josephine and Vyvyan Pennell. Clematis that fall into group C are Jackmanii, Ville de Lyon, Allanah, Comtesse de Bouchard and Star of India. Bloom periods range from early summer to autumn, and with some planning you could have clematis blooming for most of the growing season. Clematis come in both large and small flowers with many colors and shapes to the flowers. Even after they have finished flowering, they add interest to the garden with their fruits which con- sist of rounded clusters of seedlike structures with a feathery style attached. There are vining clema- tis which require a support to grow on and also a non- vining clematis which can simply be allowed to spread or be placed in an upright support such as a tomato cage to get the plant off the ground and let it spill out the top.
