Leaves and Stems Turn Brown on Clematis
Plants seem to be drying up but do not produce new growth. Leaves and stems get dark brown and we have to cut them away, reducing the plants considerably. Thank you for your info.

It sounds like the plant has a fungus. There are many it could be, but most are treated with a fungicide. Just treat the plant with a fungicide and this should help.
