Q.Failure At Growing Clematis

Zone Jennings, La. SW Louisiana I think it is zone 8 or 9 | ahfarms added on July 22, 2020 | Answered

I give up on Clematis. I am on my 4th try and nothing. The ones that dont die just fail to do anything. I water, I mulch, I fertilize correctly. They are in full sun, but I get nothing. No growth, no vine spread, no flowers. Nothing. Everything else I have from Vegs, to flowers to shrubs to trees all take off great and do what they are made to do, but never my clematis.

In the meantime, I can point you to our collection of articles on the subject. These articles will offer some reading on the subject:
