If you google "insect eggs" or insect larvae" and select images, you will find lots of sites.

clematis - The President

Posted: 11/06/2013 at 17:52

BrummieBen, I've got a President that I planted last year and cut down. This year it has only two spindly but 5foot high leaders with no sign of any buds. Have googled "spindly leaders on clematis The President" and apparently it's usual for this plant. Most say cut it down to about 18" above a bud, but there are only leaves all the way down, so I'm in the same quandrary as you are. Shall think about it for another couple of days, to do or not to do, that is the question!
