I planted my first clematis vine this spring. It has nice purple flowers but the base is getting woody. What can I do?

Please help.

Plant Guides Answer:

I don't think you need to do anything right now. The Jackmanii Clematis should be cut back to about 12 inches tall in early spring.

This is the only pruning it requires and doing this will take care of any woody growth at the bottom of the vine.
