GF some clematis you have to cut right down and others not. These ones just dry out and die off and then start again the next year. However I have one that is over 10 yrs old that I have never trimmed and it is so thick now that not all of it drys out...
Hazel Winston pees on mine sometimes. I place a small trellis or bamboo around them to guide them up the fence...We think alike I have about 6 clematis now covering a good portion of the chain link and it hides the neighbours mess!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
