Default Clematis Montana

Every three or four years I cut my Montana hard back. The new growth is
remarkable but you must do it immediately after flowering.

Best of luck with yours.

I am very fortunate to have a Montana Pink Perfection growing in my

and has been doing so for the last 12 years. Every year it has an

of flowers, however it's sheer size is now becoming a bit of a problem.

and when should I prune this to make it neater through the non-flowering
I think maybe like trimming it "a-la hedge style" would do the trick,

would certainly be the easiest, but would it be the best?
