Clematis

Few vines offer the versatility of climbing clematis. Choose from varieties that bloom in spring (such as Clematis alpina) or fall (C. terniflora) -- or anytime in between. Clematis bloom in virtually every color, as well. And there are even evergreen varieties (such as C. armandii) for mild-winter climates.

Plant Name: Clematis selections

Size: Climbs from 4 to 25 feet, depending on type

Zones: 3-9, depending on type

Test Garden Tip: If you want to go native, select species such as C. pitcheri and C. texensis --- they're native to North America.
