Clematis paniculata 2

Clematis paniculata 
Looking for a Clematis to climb 3 stories, cover a fence, take zone 2 conditions, and also be smothered in white during late summer and fall? Clematis paniculata is easy care and looks great year after year. Combine with hybrid clematis for screening to get great effect.
Flowers are white
Flower is 4 cm wide or about 2 inches.
Foliage is green
Vine grows  800 cm tall or about 27 feet.
Blooms in Sept-Oct
Prune hard early spring
Full sun to full shade.
Zone 2
Clematis like shade on the roots and sun on the tops, and many varieties, especially in the pinks and mauves are quite shade tolerant. An alkaline soil (add a handful of dolometic lime if your soil is acid) will be beneficial. Plant something (perhaps Sedum spectablis) to shade the roots if the Clematis is growing in full sun. Regular watering to establish the plants is good but after that they are quite self reliant.
