How can I prune my Asian virginsbower: tips and techniques?

Now, before we get started, know that there is a right and a wrong way to prune any Asian virginsbower, especially this one. Asian virginsbower is a particularly tricky clematis variety, which means that if you prune back too much or in the wrong places, you may end up with a less-than-ideal flower display come blooming season. For this reason, it’s important to first find out exactly how it’s done. Tools In order to properly prune Asian virginsbower, you’ll need the right set of tools. For the most part, the vines of this plant can be successfully cut using a set of small bud shears or trimming shears, but any type of plant shears will do the job. So long as they’re sharp and clean, they’ll do the trick. Loppers, on the other hand, may be a little over the top and prove to be more cumbersome than helpful, unless there’s a portion of the plant that can’t be reached safely with a ladder. Another very important tool to have on hand is gloves. While it’s unlikely that you’ll have any sort of reaction to this plant, there are numerous types of insects and plant diseases that can travel on your hands. It’s best to use a pair of gloves to not only avoid spreading pests and diseases about your garden, but also to protect your hands since you’ll be wielding some sharp tools. Be sure to wash your hands after pruning if you choose not to wear gloves. Pruning Techniques The general rule of thumb for pruning Asian virginsbower is to prune lightly. Pruning helps to promote new branch growth and increase flower production. Once the colder weather has begun to dwindle, remove all but half of the branches that are present, being careful not to trim any larger branches that will produce new shoots during the growing season. Trimming away all these dead and weak branches sends a signal to the plant to come out of its dormancy period and start growing. If you are happy with the size of the current plant, simply trim off the dry parts. The pruning stops just above a pair of healthy leaf buds. New growth will begin to appear shortly thereafter. Once your Asian virginsbower has finished blooming, feel free to trim away the dead or dying blooms, leaving healthy ones until they, too, begin to wilt. Deadheading makes for a longer blooming season. After no more blooms are left, trim back some of the tallest branches to help the plant recuperate from the blooming season and enter its dormancy period. For first and second-year Asian virginsbower, pruning will look a little different. Instead of pruning branches back, you’ll be pruning back most of the plant. Before the blooming season, trim half of the length of each branch back to encourage the growth of new offshoots, which will hopefully produce their own flowers. Then, just after the blooming season is done, cut back the entire plant to a pair of healthy leaf buds about 12 in/30 cm above the ground. This heavy pruning will promote tons of new growth the following year.
