If you’ve ever seen a clematis that is one big mountain of tangled up stems, it’s almost enough to scare you away from growing them. But let’s take a look at why, when, and how these remarkable vines should be pruned and you’ll find it’s not as difficult as it seems.

|Thank you for the information on clematis. I have the "Sweet Autum " it has grown absolutely beautiful! But I do feel intimidated on how to prune in the spring . Could you help me ?|

|Interesting article.. have read in Old Farmer's Almanac " save as much old wood as possible; blooms on old growth" ..
Have a Kardynal Wysznski .. large and blooms twice a year... suggestions on pruning?
Right now it looks really sad. Support is a post that mailbox is on -- we inherited this with our home.
North Carolina (Piedmont area)
This one bloomed in October ..
Live like every day as it is your last because one day -- it will be.
(if I can find who said this, I'll credit that dear Soul -- wasn't me, but it makes a lot of sense)
This isn't a dress-rehearsal ~

|@Mabel_goddar, 'Sweet Autumn' is in pruning group 2. If you look again at the article there is a picture showing you where they should be pruned down to. Hope that helps!
@PeggyC, 'Kardynal Wyszynski' is also in pruning group 2, so follow the same info I shared with Mabel. They can handle quite a bit of pruning if it's too large. Maybe you can sneak a trellis in the ground next to the mailbox for it to grow on. Beautiful picture you shared!
