How to Plant, Grow, and Care for Clematis (Leather Flower)
Clematis, belonging to the Ranunculaceae or buttercup family, is an alluring plant native to North America and other parts of the world. Known for their distinctive bell-shaped flowers, clematis vines are a spectacular sight in gardens.
Clematis are generally adoring of sunlight and thus, a good portion of them prefer growing in areas receiving full sun. However, clematis varieties are diverse, and some types would thrive better in partial shade.
Clematis vines are hungry plants and need a steady supply of nutrients to produce their signature large, vibrant blooms. Fertilizers rich in organic matter provide the perfect boost these perennials need to thrive.
