    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.

    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:

    Clematis leaves appear in leaflets of three. There are no hairs on Jackmanii so you may have another type of vine coming up.

    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:

    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.

    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.
