Make sure the feet are in the shade and the head is in the sun. Check moisture levels of soil.

Make sure they get a general feed in early spring.

Following the pruning information in the link below, you can clean up the vine at the appropriate time.


On a personal note, I had a summer blooming Clematis that was very sparse. I cut it to the ground and 2 years later a beautiful flush of flowers. A very hard prune may be an option for you.
