Will my Clematis seeds grow?

Danelle TDouglas HuntPam


I removed some seeds from a clematis that I had growing at our old house. Will I be able to grow plants from them? If so, is there anything special I need to do?

    I get good results just scattering them on soft soil and then covering 1/8" deep with potting soil

    Walter, Is it too hot to grow clematis in Louisiana? I have always loved them but they seem to like a cooler climate. Plus, I have never seen them for sale at any garden centers around here.

    Pam, possibly try one of the Clematis texensis cultivars like "Duchess of Albany" or "Gravetye Beauty." Because that variety is native to Texas it should take the heat better.

    Thank you Walter. I will try that.
