I've been planting clemmies with abandon since we bought our recent home. Once we found out the reason for perennials disappearing, I gathered a list of specific clematises that could grow in harmony with the trees.

Fact is, most of them will grow, but their leaves and flowers are INCREDIBLY smaller than those I've seen and grown outside of the black walnut tree's influence. I add dolomitic lime to the soil in the late fall, which should take care of the acidity problem But the juglone still prevails and if it doesn't outright kill, it stunts these amazing plants' growth. I will no longer plant clemmies in my back yard. The front is looking pretty nice though!

So, even though one can grow clematis 'under their canopy', I'm changing my vote to clematis being "juglone susceptible plants".

If you garden under Walnut trees, this is the place for you. Come see which plants will survive the Juglone and get ideas of what to do with all of those walnuts!
