You may need to plant something directly in front of its root ball to keep it cool and shaded. A thick layer of mulch will also help to keep the soil moist. Bush Clematis prefers to be grown in average, well-drained, slightly alkaline soil. Adding lime to the soil will help to provide these conditions if your soil is naturally acidic. Bury the first set of entire leaves to encourage the production of strong shoots from below soil level and to discourage clematis wilt. Photos Courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.
