Re: sweet autumn clematis

OK, Donna, this is one of those plants for which you should have believed
the statistics.  It does grow to 30 feet - and not just in single file, it
can go wide too.  You could selectively prune parts back so you wouldn't
lose all the bloom, but otherwise, just let it go this year.  Cut it back
next year.   Trellis?  You put a SAC on a trellis?  Did you read the part
about 30 feet?  Mine grows up a fence with a little help and then travels
aloft on top of my neighbor's bushes.  You could use a trellis I suppose,
but it would have to be a TRELLIS.
