Red Pruning Clematis
From our EZ Pruning Guide, shop our Red Pruning Group of Clematis -- most commonly referred to as Type I or Type A Clematis.
These Clematis only flower well on the prior year's growth. You'll be able to spot them easily because they're usually the earliest blooming Clematis in your garden. For these early bloomers, trim right after the first flowering period of the season, but only to remove growth above a broken or damaged stem or to maintain a smaller, tidier plant.
