There's really no way to extend the blooming period of a clematis, except, perhaps to grow all three kinds together. Some clematis bloom in the early spring, some types of clematis bloom in mid-summer and some types bloom in late summer and early fall. If you have two or more clematis growing together in the same spot, you'll get a succession of blooms. Otherwise, you'll get only one flush of blooms per season. Wish I had better news for you!
