Novice needs advice: Barbara Jackman, Warsaw Nike, or...?

17 years ago

I've only tried a clematis once, several years ago, and lost it almost immediately to wilt. I'm finally ready to try again!

The spot where I'd like to plant one is on our wooden light post, which has fairy roses at the base. This spot has strong sun all day. I like the bright colors of Barbara Jackman and Warsaw Nike with the delicate pink of the roses, but expect they might fade in the sun. Does anyone have an opinion as to whether one of these might do well in such a spot, or am I dooming myself to failure once again?

Suggestions greatly appreciated!
