Clematis tangutica - Golden Clematis, Old Man's Beard

Masses of buttercup yellow lantern-shaped flowers adorn this late summer bloomer. It is excellent for trellis or naturalizing. This is a very easy to grow and hardy clematis. There is an old saying with Clematis; "Tops in the sun and feet in the shade." In other words the vine blooms best in the sun and benefits from a cluster of small plants, planted around the base of the plant.

Many people simply plant a ground cover like ivy, myrtle, or pachysandra around the plant to shade the base. The Golden Clematis does best in fertile, humus rich, well-drained soil. Mulch well with composted manure or compost. Feed once a month with a well balanced fertilizer during the growing season.
