Absolutely love to get in the garden when I can. Love birds, fish and plants. I live in the heart of Sydney suburbia on an average block of land

@rosegardengirl I'm in Sydney and only the viticella type clematis will grow successfully here, this is one of them.

@Sussanah this is a type that can grow in warm temperate climates as it's a viticella type. I can't grow any other types of clematis 😊

Have tried to grow Clematis here but unfortunately too hot. That one is beautiful.

@rosegardengirl where abouts are you because in the right spot this thrives for me in Sydney. It's a viticella type that handles the heat

I reckon it's worth a try. Look for the viticella group clematis and keep their roots cool and shaded and their head in the sun. 😊

I have no idea as I just moved in last year, @nej . Inherited the garden and still learning about the plants. I did put in some compost beginning of spring...

@lylrine clematis are hungry plants and they like their heads in the sun and feet in the shade and lots of moisture 😊

Thanks @nej, perhaps lacking in moisture😊

@brightcolours @latebloomer thank you it is a nice one. For years I always thought that you couldn't grow clematis in Sydney until I found out about the viticella group and this one has been successful for me so far but I wish that I could grow the Jackmannii hybrids but sadly they are not for my climate
