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.
