B1 - Varieties that flower on wood that has been hardened by the previous season’s growth. They usually have a heavy flush of flowers in May-June followed by a second smaller flush in September on current year’s growth. In late February or March a light pruning with some variation of stem length will produce a more balanced plant. A harsh pruning will limit flowering but not hurt the plant at all. B2 - Varieties that bloom simultaneously on last year’s and the current season’s growth. Plants usually bloom continuously from June thru September. For Pruning treat as group B1 or C. C - Varieties that bloom only on current season’s growth. Plants should be cut back in late February or March to two strong sets of buds on each stem as close to the ground as possible. Vines in this group left unpruned will consist of woody growth at the bottom and foliage and flowers where last year left off. A good choice to grow up through a tree or if you want blooms to start higher up on the plant (for example: you could grow a shrub type or a group A or B Clematis in front with the group C blooming from the top of the other one up).
