    If you have Clematis, do they flower in Spring, Summer, or Fall?

    Yep, there are many different blooming times. You need to know the name, look it up and do not cut back until you know when the bloom time is.

    I had one white one and one pink one either side of two panels and as they started growing across the fencing I started interweaving them and they did look lovely.

    @Gail-Steman, Did you plant the pink clematis and the white clematis in the same year?

    I have several, all summer blooming. Mine tend to occasionally get clematis wilt (sigh!!). I read recently that planting them a bit deeper & adding compost on top every spring will help with that. I have topped off all of mine with compost this spring. Hoping for the best.
    @Petronius do you grow clematis?

    I am interested in perennials that are not vines.
