Clematis ‘Jackmanii’

Clematis 'Jackmanii'

The Clematis ‘Jackmanii’ at the entrance to the garden was greening by February 24 this year and its first flower opened on March 30. Jackmanii is an easy-to-grow hybrid with large 5-7-inch dark purple flowers.

Today I noticed the clematis is looking lovely. It started blooming before I even thought about pruning, which is supposed to be done in late winter. Maybe it too late now to try to prune it? I do not know if it is advisable at this point.
