The flowers are very large, usually simple, but sometimes also double; the colors are shades of pink, blue and purple; there are yellow and white flower species. The clematis they are plants widespread in nature also in Europe and in Italy.


Exposure

the plants of clematis they prefer well-sunny locations, where they can receive direct sun for at least a few hours a day; if placed in an excessively shady place they generally do not produce flowers. For a luxuriant development it is advisable to keep the foot and roots in a place protected from excessive sun and wind, so that the root system remains fairly fresh. The specimens of clematis do not fear the cold weather, also because during the winter vegetative rest period they tend to lose the aerial part completely.
