I love this clematis. I have it on the north side of my house in full shade. I have it on a 9 ft obelisk and it grows completely up and above it. It's gorgeous will lots of blooms. This is April 12 and it's loaded with blooms in zone 6. I have only had it 3 years and it is well established. I haven't done anything to it but water it occasionally in dry times.
