Done flowering - now what?

seattlegardenerApril 15, 2010

I have an evergreen clematis - armandii?? (the one with long leathery leaves). It is through flowering and the vine is now full of the flower stems only. Can I cut or snap these stems off to tidy it up?

Yes, you can deadhead the spent flower stems.

I also remove the flowered stems & then fertilize. I fertilize once a month through the growing season. In fall I apply some root stimulator to my young clematis.
