Shade Tolerant Clematis

Here are our recommendations for clematis for shade area's of the garden.  While many clematis are able to grow on 'Any' aspect these ones are the best for growing in the more shady areas of your garden.
The clematis natural habitat in may area's, is to grow under the canopy of tree's and shrubs and for the twining stems to grow through the branches, allowing the flower to lay on the open canopy above. Because of this habit these plants will cope with partial shade to full shade as long as the shade is not really dark or dense, like it would be between two tall buildings for example.

We hope that our selection of clematis for shade offers something for you and your garden.
