Clematis Armandii planted approx 4 weeks ago in a large terracotta pot using Ericaceous planting and potting mix. Keeping it watered. New growth has happened for the first time this week, the leaves appear healthy but they’re red/brown in colour, is this normal? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
