Clematis problem

Posted: 01/05/2015 at 23:34

Hi Richard,

Sorry can't think the varieties, all I can say they were not Clematis like Nelly Moser or similar.  I tend to like slightly unusual types, perhaps that's part of my problem and they were not so strong or vigorous. Thank you for trying to help with such scant information.

Granma, Hello I have the same attitude as you, Idid leave the plant in the ground but all the stems looked very very dead. thanks for the advice.

Hello Dovefromabove, (thinks where could you have possibly got your name from?).  The fence had been treated about 2 years previously.  The odd thing was that the stems that became black had not actually touched the fence, the leaves higher up had, they only died after a while.

Pansyface forgot to say I planted the Clematis about the same level as the pot it was grown in.

Hi Pansyface, Thanks for replying.  The stem where the black occurred didn't have any leave on it, they were higher up the plant. I don't remember seeing any black spotson the leaves as they died.

Hi, I planted a Clematis in the ground, facing south, it was at an angle so the plant could climb up to a fence and on to an arch trellis. The plant was well watered in and started to grow. When it was about 5 or 6 foot the stems halfway up the plant (not actually touching the fence) became black, the previously healthy leaves then just died.  Like an idiot I went out and bought a more vigorous variety Clematis, but the same thing happened.

Any suggestions would be most gratefully received.  Thank you.

Hi Helen, The plant looks like Lantana.  I have seen it in places like Cyprus.  Probably not suitable for our climate.
