    You can grow it in a pot now I would recommend bringing it indoors like in the shed over the winter season to project it from the weather. By doing this you have a better opportunity to save it from one season the next. Just make sure you plant in a large pot, example - six inch potted planted should go in at least a 8 or 10 inch size pot.

    I don't see why not. Just make sure of a couple of things: the pot is big enough and deep enough so you can put a trellis in it For the plant to grow on and when it starts to get cold bring it into the house. Put plant pot on wheels for easy moving.

    Boy oh boy, we have climatis and I think we have populated the neighborhood with it. It won't stop growing no matter what we do, it always comes back. Good luck, I would hesitate at being so kind to it. Lol

    Might be threatened by bad frost and freezing.
    Normally mine have survived, this past winter was troublesome.

    Im in zone 7 —I had three clematis in large planters by my garage door. I move them to the sunny side of the house during winter and mulch them heavily.

    Last year I lost 2 of the 3 clematis due to the severly cold winter seasonal temperatures that we had.
