These clematis were already in my garden when I moved in. Does anyone know what they are, and when they should be cut back?

No idea of id, but the rule with Clematis pruning may be simplified as Flowering before June, don't prune. Flowering after June, prune in February.

I know that's the advice but I had what looks like a Nelly Moser, which grows in a pot on my terrace and which flowers in June/July and because it's south-east facing, goes all brown and crispy. I cut it down to the ground a few weeks ago and put the pot in the north-east side of the garden and it's nearly grown the full length of its support hoop and looks for all the world like it's got buds about to mature. I give up with the official pruning!
