Deformed flowers

amyta(z8 mid GA)August 21, 2012

My clematis, Sugar Candy, was so pretty that people stopped to look. It's kin to Nelly Moser. This year it has very few small and deformed flowers. Does anyone know what ails it?

Do you have problem foliage as well ~ Check pictures of iron deficiency (Chlorosis) w/ is treatable or virus affected clem through foliage symptoms to compare to.

I had a few w/ similar problems for 2 years on a few Clems. I took samples of leaves to the nursery for diagnoses. A treatment of *Copperas* was suggested. They are now getting better ~ I suspected 1 w/ virus (Untreatable) but even this is coming up quite improved!!!

Good luck!!!
