Clematis Pruning Group 2
Clematis Group 2 consists of all the early large-flowered hybrid clematis that bloom in late sping or early summer and sometimes again in late summer. These should be pruned lightly in late winter or early spring. Pruning consists of removing weak and crossing shoots then thinning down the plant to a structure of evenly spaced one and two year old stems. Cut each stem just above a pair of healthy buds. If the vine thins at the bottom you can often force a flush of new growth from the base by cutting the vine back to 18 inches immediately after the flush of bloom in June.
