Adding Clematis Tangutica to Your Landscaping

Of the hundreds of varieties of Clematis plants, the Clematis Tangutica is among the most beautiful.  The plant blooms abundantly from the middle of the summer until near the end of fall. When fully open, the bright yellow flowers contain a center of crimson.  If you learn the basics of care for this flower, any gardener – even a beginner – can add this beautiful bloom to their landscaping plans.

Clematis Tangutica, also called Golden Tiara, must be planted in the most fertile soil possible in order to achieve the best results. The soil must be able to adequately drain. The plant needs sufficient water, but too much water can be a hindrance.

As for sunlight, Clematis Tangutica does best in partial shade. If possible, provide even more shade to the roots. This can be done by planting an area with partial shade and then planting small shrubs around the base of the plant to provide an extra measure of shade to the roots.

You can use any type of structure that you would like in order to give the plant a place to grow. You could choose a trellis, a fence or even simple support rings. Whatever type of climbing structure that you choose, be sure that the vine is securely fastened to it. Failing to do so is one of the most common problems faced by those who attempt to grow this plant.

Other problems include a variety of fungi and insects. Keeping the plant in a spot with sufficient circulation can help with some of the fungus problems and proper application of pesticides can help with insects.

Proper pruning is vital in order for the plant to achieve its maximum potential. Most experts agree that a lot of pruning in the first year will help to strengthen the roots and provide the most benefit to the plant overall. Some worry that pruning too much too soon will do more harm than good. The fact is that the worst case scenario is that too much pruning could lead to slower flower development. It will not, however, kill or permanently harm the plant.

There are many uses for Clematis Tangutica. They can be used in flower beds, along borders and, of course in any number of climbing situations such as screens and trellises.
To propagate the Clematis Tangutica, simply divide in the spring.  You will need to root the cuttings in the spring as well unless the cuttings are somewhat ripe. In that case, you can wait until early summer.

These plants do very well in almost every climate. The exception is places where the temperature dips below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. While the plant can thrive in most environments, some advice, such as when to plant or prune, may change from region to region. For that reason it is a good idea to talk to the experts at your local nursery in order to get advice that is specific to your location.

Some beginning gardeners think that climbing plants are too difficult for them. The truth is that some, such as the Clematis Tangutica, are easier than you think and can add gorgeous splashes of color several months out of the year.
