Clematis, a genus of perennial ornamental vines, holds significant potential for both decorative and ecological applications in garden landscape design. This research explores the comprehensive strategies from resource screening to garden landscape design, focusing on the cultivation, ornamental properties, disease management, and environmental adaptability of Clematis species. Clematis species are renowned for their diverse flower shapes and colors, making them ideal for vertical landscaping and garden aesthetics. Research conducted in the Stavropol Botanical Garden identified 29 varieties with high ornamental value, emphasizing the importance of flower shape, size, and color in selection for vertical gardening. Additionally, Clematis tientaiensis, an endangered species, demonstrates specific light requirements for optimal growth, highlighting the need for appropriate light management in garden design. Disease management is crucial for maintaining the health and aesthetic value of Clematis. Common diseases such as wilt, rust, and powdery mildew, along with pests like nematodes and aphids, pose significant threats. Effective agrotechnical measures and pest control strategies are essential for sustainable cultivation. Environmental adaptability studies reveal that Clematis species exhibit varied responses to abiotic stresses such as heat and light. For instance, Clematis crassifolia and Clematis cadmia show different physiological and molecular responses to heat stress, which can inform breeding and cultivation practices. Similarly, the adaptability of Clematis tientaiensis to different irradiance levels underscores the importance of environmental considerations in landscape design. In conclusion, the integration of Clematis species into garden landscapes requires a multifaceted approach, encompassing careful selection of varieties, disease management, and environmental adaptability. This research provides a foundation for future research and practical applications in ornamental gardening and landscape architecture.
