How to maintain these 3 plants


Bought a house last fall and it has lots of nice landscaping...so I'm trying to learn how to maintain it all. Please take a look at these 3. I'm not sure if I remove the dried out brown parts to new green can grow in this spring. Or do I leave it and it grows back in by itself.

One is a bush/ground type plant, another is a plant hanging along parts of a fence and the final one looks like grape vines elevated by wood supports.

Upstate NY. Thanks.

Two closer pics of the plant/vines on the fence. Seems to be some greener vines coming in under the dead/brown stuff.

How to maintain these 3 plants


The first plant is a Hydrangea. Prune after flowering. The plant will develop flower buds over the summer for the next year- so if you prune before it flowers in spring, you will be removing the flowers. In upstate NY you may not get flowers every year, since the buds can be killed in extreme winters.

The 2nd plant is Autumn Clematis- it gets covered in white flowers in late summer. You can prune the plant now since it flowers on new growth.

The 3rd plant- I can't tell, but could certainly be grape. You'll know what the leaves emerge.

That's what it looks like from here also
