Pruning Group 1

Clematis Pruning Groups Explained:

Clematis varieties are categorized into three different pruning groups based on their flowering habits and how they respond to pruning. Understanding these groups is key to ensuring proper care and maximizing flower production.

  • Pruning Group 1: Flower on the growth produced the previous year. These Clematis typically bloom in early spring, often before most other climbers.
  • Pruning Group 2: Flower on both new and old growth. These varieties typically flower in late spring or early summer and may flower again in late summer or autumn if lightly pruned after the first flush of flowers.
  • Pruning Group 3: Flower only on new growth produced in the current year. These Clematis flower in late summer or autumn.
