It sounds like clematis wilt. Here is more:
For years he has killed wisteria, apple, nectarine, cherry and this year two clematis. is there any where i can send the leaves for analyses? I am 82 years old and had enough as much as selling my house. Sorry don't have mobile to send photos. Hope you can help.
Is it through herbicide drift? I'm not clear on how it is happening, but you can probably find a nearby lab that can analyze a leaf tissue sample. A nearby university could point you in the right direction.
Last year we planted a clematis in a container to grow up against a trellised fence. Initially it was OK but after a week or so the leaves started to turn brown and the flowers shrivel. We had planted it around July time. We left it there until this year, when it began to grow quite vigorously with lots of flowers. However after a few weeks it again started to fail with shrivelling leaves and withering flowers. It now looks almost dead. Photos are attached. What is going wrong?
Make sure it isn't over or underwatered. It may be getting a fungal infection after it gets going each year, possibly clematis wilt. Here is more:
Hi! Does new growth of a Clematis Jackmanii have fine hairs on the stem? I ask this because my plant seemingly died last year. I now have a new stem growing out of the ground, which I hope is the Clematis. It is currently around 6" tall, with a flexible stem dotted with long, narrow leaves. Thank you for any information.
Clematis leaves appear in leaflets of three. There are no hairs on Jackmanii so you may have another type of vine coming up.
as strange but did not research what was going on. This year my Nelly Moser vine bloomed beautifully the middle of May for about 2 weeks. Then about a week later as all the blooms were fading another double bigger purple and white flower grew again on the end of the vine but larger this year and about a week later another double purple and white larger with some yellow green flower petals bloomed on the same vine but further out. I did some research and it appears to be a Tiaga Clematis. It is a really unusual but beautiful flower. How does this happen? I have not purchased a Tiaga Clematis and frankly I had never heard of it. I am dumbfounded. How does something like this occur? Thanks for any help
It looks prettier than a Tiaga. It's possible the grower had a small piece of Tiaga in with your plant and it just got large enough to bloom. Another possibility, and more likely, is that you have a sport. That is a mutation in the genes, and it happens quite often. Here is more:
I have some shoots of my Clematis sporting leaves that are brown but are not wilting. What is it and should I cut them back?
This is a severe bacterial infection. If you cut it without treating it, it will make the infection worse. Treat with a fungicide, and only water when there is drought.

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! (Please see pics of before new leaves and after)
Yes, this can be normal. I don't see anything out of the ordinary. Just be sure that you care for it properly to ensure that it grows normally, and changes to the mature green color.
