Thanks to beautiful shoots decorated withmulti-colored large flowers, clematis in the garden can become one of the most central elements. This is really so, because with their help you can decorate arches, gazebos and even a home veranda. This plant, many rightly called the liana queen, but it grows on all continents. Known now are about two hundred of its species, of which fifteen can be found on the territory of our country. Decorative horticulture can perfectly adapt clematis both to survival in severe frosts and to high heat. The length of the stems of this plant can reach five meters. Each of the flowers consists of a number of pestles with stamens and sepals, painted in different colors, in quantities from four to twelve. The leaves of this creeper have several parts of different densities, shades and forms. With regard to the root system of the plant, it consists of a basic and shortened root, as well as several lateral cord-like roots. At the same time new shoots appear in it constantly.
Clematis is a beautifulunpretentious plant, so caring for him is quite simple. It reduces primarily to the constant loosening of the soil and the removal of weeds. As for watering, the plant needs it once every two weeks. Before the fall of autumn, most varieties need to cut off shoots and fill it with a 12-cm layer of soil, which will save plants even in conditions of 40-degree frosts. In spring, clematis in the garden are excavated immediately after the thawing of frozen soil. In the event that the onset of warming is delayed, however, the sun's rays are already shining brightly, the kidneys need to be covered from them so as not to allow growth until the root system thaws. Otherwise, the plant will not receive the necessary nutrients and may die.
