Planting Instructions: When selecting clematis for your garden, think about mature height, flower, and color. Plant your clematis in moist, well-drained, neutral soil in a sunny location. Dig a hole and be very gentle when placing the plant in the hole as the roots, crown, and developing vines of the plant can be broken. Position the plant 1-2" below the soil surface, so the first set of leaves is just under the soil surface. Water the plant. Spread spiraling roots evenly throughout the soil. Keep evenly moist. Water the plant weekly to get the plant established.
