Q.Can I Grow Clematis In The Philippines?

Zone Philippines | Anonymous added on June 19, 2022 | Answered

Hi. I’m from the Philippines & just started gardening & I just read an article here about Philippine landscaping & plants. I have been wanting to plant a clematis in my garden but my friend who lives in the US said that it won’t grow here. I’m also confused about zones. I read somewhere that if I keep the roots under the shaded area while the rest of the plants are in full sun, I might. Hope you can help me. TIA. Amaya

Clematis like their feet cool and their heads in the sun. To keep the roots cool, just add a couple inches (5 cm) of mulch around them. They need to be planted in well-draining soil and make sure it isn't an area that stays wet a lot.
