These Clematis are vigorous. Each year, they bloom primarily on new vines, often lacking viable vines older than the current season. Because they flower freely on new stems, we suggest pruning the plants every spring down to just above the lowest node showing growth. Large, established plants can also be pruned flat to the soil, which helps them initiate new stems. New mid-season growth will rebloom in most U.S. climates.
We suggest using our Rosewood Pruners to help you prune these Clematis. Your best Clematis deserve the best pruners.
