With quite a bit of effort, it will be possible to grow clematis in hanging container. It will always go up, though. They don't trail, in nature, and won't really trail in container, either.

The most important thing for these in container will be feeding, making sure that the roots get watered correctly (Watering until it runs out, then only watering once dry down to about 2 inches.), and root and top pruning (no more than 1/3 of the plant, in total). If you can keep up with these tedious tasks at the proper time, then it will flourish.

If you would rather not have to care for it as intensively, then a container on the ground will be better suited, since they will climb anyway.
