Q.trimming clematis

Zone cincinnati, oh | Betty Reiber added on November 17, 2017 | Answered

I’m in Cincinnati, OH. My climatis blooms abundantly in the late spring and then a few blooms come during the summer. I’ve even seen a couple in the late Fall this year. Is it OK to trim the plant back this late (Nov. 17th)? It’s 52 degrees F. today, going down to 45 tonite. Tomorrow, high 61 with rain and high winds, low 34.

If you have any concern about when to trim them then it is best to wait until right before you get new growth in the spring time. Here is an article with more information on their care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/clematis/growing-clematis.htm
