Can you identify this plant and is it ill/deficient?

Thanks Salino, I should have said it has got sticky out bits in the centre - sorry about the non-specialist language!

The leaves are lime green, I thought this was normal but as my sunflowers nearby are not doing well I'm now wondering if the soil is the problem.  No flowers so far this year.  We are in chalky soil - Chilterns.

I posted about blackened growing tips on my armandii apple blossom a month or so ago:

I still don't know the problem, I pulled off the black growing tips and some of the buds by the leaves are getting bigger so I'm hoping it will start growing again.  I put it down to cold winds as it is by a windy side passage to our house but your post suggests otherwise.  It does now have a few brown leaves so perhaps I'll go out and have a more thorough check!

Clematis armandii - what is the problem?

It is the growing tips that are the problem, they are black as you can see in the second picture.  The plant overall looks fine although with some black leaf tips.  Is this wind burn or over enthusiastic watering?

Thanks for any advice.

 I planted it about six weeks ago and it did well until a week or so ago when we had some quite strong winds.  Is this wind burn and will it start growing from lower down?  We are in the Chilterns.
