Your opinion on using this combo.
I've got a Veilchenblau and C. viticella 'Polish Spirit' ordered for this spring and I'm planing on training them up my front porch (based at the front left side of the porch in the picture). I'm going to plant them both directly behind the front left support beam - under the porch part instead of on the outside so the "feet" will be in the shade for the clematis and train them to wrap around and go up the front - or maybe the Clematis on the inside and the Veil on the outside if it would make a big difference?? Trying not to over think this.
Either way, I'm picking this combo because I think the color will go well with the house (bonus: my gf loves purple) and so that I'll get blooms in the spring throughout the summer.
Can anyone see any problems arising from this combo except a mangled mess when pruning? I would rather learn from other peoples experience then failure on this one. From Front Porch
