Can anyone tell me what type of clematis this is? I remember when I bought it said something like Firecracker? but was wondering if I need to take off dead flowers or any pruning necessary? I have never done anything to it and each year it looks better with more blooms. It looks like a brown dead piece of wood by the end of the fall, but then comes to LIFE like a miracle in the spring and has more and more blooms each seems like nothing is good for this ? I do water allot in spring and also couple of times give it powder mixed with water ( miracle grow type) fertilizer, but that's about it.

Looks like that to me too. I usually take off the dead heads as they will sometimes have a second flourish but wouldn't seems to doing just fine.

Thanks for all your answers. Good to know what kind of Clematis it is, and I'll try taking off the dead blooms and see if it gives, me a 2nd bloom! Thanks again for your comments and answers
