We've had a few good days and the tallest of the clematises is around 30" to 36" tall. We're due for big rains tomorrow. I'll be glad for the rest after working mostly 8 hour days outside.

Stay safe!

Thanks for enjoying lily and pirl. Lily have you thought about trying minioette with that datura? Has a bit of orange to flower and the fragrance is spectacular, is an annual that happens to reseed. (oooops minionette), they say Princess Josephine loved it in her gardens, think maybe I should replant, love anything fragrant in the garden. I'm probably a month away til clems bloom so heres last year again. Enjoy. Kathy. Oh by the way I love all the pix, is just further inspiration to keep growing all the beauties available, any rich men out there who might like to support my habits? LOL. Later, and Good Luck, Kathy.

There are specific need for each group of clems. that requires different pruning techniques. My short coming is that I did never took the time to master the task of pruning each specific type of clems. First step is to know what type they're, then proper care of the clems comes naturally. I know type 1 which hardly ever requires pruning, but type II and III get bits tricky. JeanneTX and Pirl (Arlene) could chime in on these matter I'm sure.

Kim is absolutely correct on this. Type 3's get pruned to the first or second node in early Spring. I like to do mine Aprilish and I also scratch some fertilizer into the ground. After the Type 2's are established, prune them back after flowering. This will encourage another flush of flowers. Type 1's after getting established, don't require pruning, other than to remove dead vines. I don't think it hurts the type 1's to ocassionally prune them back to the first or second node every couple of years...

Ok , let me see if I got this straight, If it blooms in April to May it is group 1, if it blooms in June to July it is group 2, it it blooms later it is group 3.
I have one that blooms in June to July and it seems to like being cut down in spring. Each year it gets thicker,but not over 8 ft tall. But the ones that are blooming now I trimmed down this spring and they are not bushy at all. The bottoms are ,not the tops. So these I should go out and pinch back how far? I can wait for blooms because I would rather have more.

I never thought about it that way but it sounds good, Marie.

Many of mine, especially Jackmanii, have bushy bottoms and the tops look sparse but the flowers will pop out all over. This Jackmanii has already invaded the lantern, again, and I'll have to clip it back but it will still invade the lantern on a weekly basis.

This photo was taken 5/13 and now the lantern is packed with new growth. See how bushy the bottom is but not the top?

I prune as Carolyn does but when a type 2 looks ratty or sparse I happily cut it way back.

Yesterday I spotted one stem on a type 2 that didn't look healthy so before it spread to the entire plant I took the entire stem out right to the ground.

Sorry it took so long to answer. The Clem is not pruned and fed miracle grow occasionally.It's roots are shaded by a bush and lots of leaves. It gets lots of sun and is next to my driveway, so lots of heat. It is one of my best bloomers. In fact all my Clems that are next to a brick wall or concrete are thriving.

You're forgiven lblackwell. Just kidding. Okay, everyone is racing to build us a brickwall for our clems. All jokes aside, now that I recall my daughter's clematis was that robust one spring I visited, she too planted hers agains a west facing wall of the house. The saying 'Roots in shade, vines in sun exposure' does hold true for clematis. :) Oh yah, and a little or miracle grow occasionally. Thanks lblackwell and everyone that shared your input in this thread.

Bananna, I've noticed the same phenomenom. The blue double was in bloom, so I'm pretty satisfied with it. The question remains for the pink double, for I haven't seen it making buds yet. I forgot their names, will look at the tags tomorrow. :)

Whoa! ge, you sure do start the day early! bananna18, the blue is Frisca Maria and the pink is 'Empress'. I've some scattered blooms of 'Fireworks' perhaps at present. But April and May was my peak for clems. here. Surely do miss those blooms.

Strange but that's how Henryi has been for me this year as well. Same with Candida.

The fun part is this one got sprayed with weed killer and didn't even flinch. He wiped his eyes and continued growing.

They can either be tough to grow or amazingly resilient.

Blue Light is struggling now. It's in a giant pot but doesn't like it. I have to find room somewhere in the ground for it. I have room but nowhere for it to go UP.

Not a tree, a shrub, a gatepost, a lantern post, a gutter?

Go outside and make believe you're the clematis and find a place you'd love to show off!
