Joseph,

That type of clematis flowers on old and new wood. Prune only to remove dead or weak growth in early spring. Immediately after the first flush of blooms fades away in mid spring, cut back the blooming sections to promote regrowth and another flush of blooms later in the summer.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
