Clematis turning black

My perfectly healthy, 5 year old Jack is turning black from the top down. This happened within 4 or 5 days. Could this be the dreaded wilt?

Are the vines black all the way down to the soil?..If so...just prune the vines to the soil..keep watering and should return...Jeanne

RE: Clematis turning black

No, the bottom leaves are green with yellow between the veins. Three quarters on top black, one quarter on bottom green with yellow. Thanks for response.
