Can I plant Clematis in a large pot?



Yes, but be careful you don't choose a vigorous one. The breeders are bringing out specially bred plants for pots these days.

Another thing - it will still need its roots to be cool, so put a layer of pebbles on top of the compost, or grow something else in the pot as well, to shade the roots.

avoid the montana's, a mistake I made and ending up putting in the ground.

Agreed - they're too vigorous, even if you cut them back.
