Is My Clematis dead?

I have a 2 yr old Ernest Markham planted in the ground at the same spot but somehow it hasn't come out yet at all.

My other clematis have started to bloom. Is it dead? :(

I don't know, but if you look at my "Did I kill my 5 year old Jackmanii" thread, you may be encouraged. =)

Thanks for the info, let's hope so. I've been watering the plant.

I have two clemantis planted in different areas..this is the first year that they haven't bloomed. The leaves are growning well..but no blooms as yet. Do I need to dig up and plant new ones?

RE: Is My Clematis dead?

No..you don't need to dig them up...it's still early...let them grow and bloom..new leaves is a good thing..did you give them fertilizer?...Jeanne

What Jeannie said.

The nights have been very cool this spring, which contributes to bloom time delay.

No, fertilizer.. I think I read it shouldn't be a regular plant fertilizer. Your right it has been cool. We may have frost tonight and tomorrow night..in Ohio.

Fertilize them with an organic rose or tomato fertilizer or manure or compost or alfalfa pellets.

I just got in from covering the tender things because we're suppose to have frost tonight, too. I don't have enough stuff to cover the clematis, but they are pretty hardy. The first bloom started opening today, so I cut it and brought it in the house. As it warmed up the sepals fell open.
