I saw a cedar obelisk at Home Depot last week. It was only about 4' high, and most of the clematis's I have planted are at between 7 and 10ft. DH and I bought a couple of cedar boards and he made me one Friday. The one in the store was $29.98. The one we made cost about the same, but it is 6ft high with a 20'' opening at the bottom. Now, the question I have is.. do I plant the clematis so it grows inside, or on the outside so it climbs on the outside?

I am not sure how to plant .I got a willow one and it did not have big openings for a clematis to grow thru. so I planted Maromi on the outside.Did not want to crush any blooms .

Mine is so open, I just planted on the inside and wound some of the vines onto it. I think it depends on how open yours is.

Mine has a 20" opening at the bottom so I'm thinking I could maybe plant inside

I just bought a new obelisk at an end-of-season sale (1/2 price).
The opening was big enough so I planted my clematis in the center.

It's lovely Susan..That is what I did too..
But on a much larger one..I put the rose in the middle and a clematis on either side.
