Clematis x texensis 'Graveyte Beauty'

6 months ago Jan 2021, I ordered this clematis. It flowered with perhaps 3 blooms the first year in mid to late summer (as it should). Last year, it flowered in May fairly well and wasn't deadheaded (yes, I'm typically lazy), and no more flowers for the rest of the year.

I saw it had emerged today and I *believe* the terminal buds with flowers are already in place. I bet the silly thing flowers in April this year. Given that I can't prevent how early it flowers, do you think it would behoove me to dead head and see if it produces more flowers in what should be it's proper season. Always love how the plants don't read the books.
