My Clematis is wilting
I have a clematis candidas in its second year. Anyway three days before it was green and lush with beautiful buds ready to burst open, then we had two days of downpour, I mean a lot of rain. Well today the darn plant has wilted. Its leaves look sickly, the buds are still upright but it literally looks as if it wants to fall right off of its vines!
I had read that clematis can take a lot of water, but this doesn't seem true of this one. I cannot think of any reason why it would suddenly wilt save the heavy rain. Should I just let it dry out? Apply fertilizer? How can I help it recover?
