This is the first spring we've been in this home and I'm slowly learning about all the plants here. There is a clematis that I inadvertently hard pruned early this spring - the single "dead looking" vine was about 5 feet long, with a tiny bit of new growth at the tip of the vine (which I didn't notice until after I had pruned).
I had thought that I might have done it in, but now, there are a few new shoots coming from the roots (about 8 inches growth in the last few weeks).
How do I go about identifying what pruning category this is, and what variety? Do I just have to wait until it flowers?
