Summer Show!

I know this is not craft related but working in the yard the last couple weeks I took some snapshots of my clematis and I just could not help but show it to you. This plant extends above the porch and touches the roof. Now I am not a green thumb but this is truly my show- BUT, I hope some of you ladies are green thumbs and can give me some pointers. The "inside" of this plant is dead because last year we had a big wind and it ripped the plant off the trellis, hence it is all brown and I am thinking I need to cut this back and start fresh. Can I do this? Will it come back because that is my ultimate goal. Hope you enjoyed the colorful display!
