    Clematis require a yearly dormancy. You can prune them back pretty hard, but I would only prune one third of the plant each time. I believe your plant will come back just fine. Here is an article on the general care of clematis: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/clematis/growing-clematis.htm
