Is your clematis planted near to a wall or fence, and if so how far away? The higher the wall or fence the wider the rain shadow (when we get any rain) Did you plant the clematis the recommended 2 inches deeper than in it's pot?
My name is the same as my twitter one, when my sister was studying French she started calling me Fleur, that was already taken on Twitter so I expanded it to Fleurisa
Slugs and snails love to eat clematis

You can grow them from seed, similar conditions to peppers and tomatoes, from the Solanaceae family
That's a datura, their flowers grow upwards, brugmansia flowers dangle downwards
How close to the bottom of the fence is it planted? I think you need to plant it about 2 feet out and lean it in towards the fence. Otherwise it will be in the rain shadow of the fence. Honeysuckles need moisture at the roots
Is it planted in the ground?
