What happened to my Clematis?
I am just heart sick. I have an approx. 6 yr. old Clematis and it bloomed appr. 2-3 weeks ago. Beautiful, w/about 150 dark purple blooms. We've had a variety of weather and lots of rain. One morning I looked out and all the blooms were wilted over. It had gotten very cold one night (think the night before), down to the 40s, but I don't think there was frost. I thought once the weather warmed up the blooms would spring back to life, but they didn't and now the whole plant looks dead! Everything. A few leaved with green in the middle, but browning from the outside. I am just sick! Thoughts? Cud it have been the cold? I also sprayed whole garden for bugs, but can said safe for all plants.
