Will clematis climb a lamp post??

HHassist's picture

I've been wanting a clematis for a long time, so I finally bought one today -- even though I don't actually have a place to put it!!

I'm wondering if a clematis will climb a lamp post?? We've got a a basic, boring black metal lamp post in our front yard that's been incorporated into the flower bed. If I plant the clemtais at the base of the post, will it climb the post??
