Clematis Repeat Blooming (Group C)
These are the late large-flowered clematis species. They flower in late June into August. These bloom on new wood from the current season so you don't need to maintain any old wood. They should be cut back to a living bud at about 24" from the ground in spring just as the buds swell. If you don't prune, the flowers will tend to be only up at the top of the plant and the bare stems will be unattractive below.
