Did I kill my clematis?
I was preparing my yard for winter yesterday, and went to tear down some vines from my Perle D'azur clematis, which I just planted this summer. I wasn't planning on pruning, just looked and thought I'd pull off the vines from the trellis.
I ripped too hard and took the woody stem right out at ground level!! Yikes, have I killed this clematis? I am so sad, it was so beautiful....
Based on your experience/expertise with clematis, what do you think?
