I had read of someone growing a Montana clematis up a lilac bush, and thought it was a great idea. Unfortunately I didn't take into consideration the fact that my Superba lilac only grows to about 6'. But I'm still very happy with the effect. The lilac and the clematis bloom simultaneously with the same color, and both smell nice. After the lilac is finished it's like a big floppy clematis bush, just smothered with blooms, which continue a bit longer than the lilac. I just noticed how nice it smells after dark. It's a light vanilla scent, but it carries on the night air. Very glad I planted it.

This is by far the most vigorous of four types of clematis plants we bought about two years ago. It is producing lots of flowers between 7 and 8 cm across. Of the other three plants, one looks dead and two are much smaller than this. I would recommend it.
