2. Clematis is the queen of climbers

Once you’ve successfully grown a clematis, you’ll likely become a lifelong fan. Available in a wide selection of sizes and colors, the purple clematis is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful. The clematis grows on a vine, some of which can reach 10 to 20 feet, so it needs some sort of trellis to thrive. Other varieties fit nicely in pots on your patio. The blooms reach 5 to 6 inches across, but others are small, bell-shaped, or double blossoms. These plants love sunshine and well-drained soil that’s slightly alkaline.
