Use this plant to liven up a landscape. The only limit is your imagination!
Clematis virginiana uses elongated leaf petioles to wind itself up fences, trellises, trunks, shrubs, and anything else where it can find purchase. To encourage growth along a trunk or wall, use a narrow trellis to get it started. Use this vine to cover up or add interest to a trunk, fence, or pergola to make it come alive. You can even allow it to spread along the ground in open spaces or between trees and shrubs.
It can make an otherwise bland or cookie-cutter space feel lush and live. This vine does grow rather fast and may need to be rerouted periodically so it does not take over nearby plantings. It can easily be pruned before the next spring to keep it in check.
