Yikes! Nellie Moser dead vine from last year has leaves!

10 years ago

I guess I got preoccupied last fall with other things, but I never pruned my 3 y.o. Nellie Moser vine after it dried up and lost its leaves with the first frost. I happened to walk by it yesterday and was freaked out to see that this brown woody vine had groups of leaf buds at every node.

Should I leave it alone, prune it, or what? I'm still a clematis newbie. This Nellie only had ONE blossom for the whole growing season last year, despite a prime planting place, sufficient water, and fertilizer.
