Notes for Identification:

Bush Clematis (Clematis heracleifolia var. davidiana) is a woody based perennial of open habit, with toothed, deeply 3-lobed, light green leaves, 4-6in (10-15cm) long.

Pruning group C: These Clematis are the easiest to prune but also the Clematis with the greatest need of hard annual pruning.  In late winter or early spring, cut the Clematis back to 24-36in (60-90cm) since no old wood needs to be maintained. Cut to a pair of healthy strong buds at the base of the plant.  If these go unpruned, the flowers are produced way up at the top of the plant making them appear leggy.
