Clematis 'Caesar's Gold'
If you ever become frustrated at growing the purple Jackmani clematis, here's a variety to try. It blooms later in the season but is sure to bloom and survive. Clematis tangutica 'Caesar’s Gold' is a climber and loves to grow up trees and fences, or cascade down a large boulder. With dirigible-shaped green leaves and the upside down, tulip-shaped, glowing yellow and gold blooms, it will make your garden come alive from August through the fall.

Grow C. tangutica in average to full sunlight in a well-drained soil. Give it a good pruning in spring, and it will thrive for many years to come.
