Hello, I am new to this forum but hope someone will still be able to help me.
I have an established clematis in garden but am unsure if group 1 or 2 for prunning.  I did think it was in group 1 but am not sure now.
I have included a close up picture taken on 16th Jume last year
It is currently showing very large, green buds all over plant
Thanks in advance for any help

Looks very much like a group 2 to me (C. 'Miss Bateman'?).

Definitely not a group 1

Thanks for help - yes definetely look like a Bateman.
Produces masses of flowers even though i have nver really prunned as thought was group 1.
I wonder if I should leave all my group 2 clematis to own devices as if all flowered like this one it would be great
