Clematis Plants

Moving clematis

Zone 29576 | Vmilden added on August 11, 2019 | Answered

I am attempting to move a clematis from Iowa to South Carolina. This plant was planted in an east facing, well established area of hosta and other shade plants. I read where clematis needs six hours of sun a day so planted it in a more sunny space. I also mounded soil and mulch high on the stem as it had about 3 feet of woody growth. It is a small clematis and was planted in Iowa for about 4 years. When I came home yesterday the leaves were all starting to droop. I’m going to take some cuttings to see if I can root them just in case this doesn’t make the transition. Any other tips are appreciated.
