What's going on here......

I have a 3 year clematis which has never bloomed and I am quite sure it is Artic Queen. This spring I hard pruned it again although it's a type 2 and it had been growing nicely with large buds. Some of the leaves are wilting but what puzzles me is the buds look to have a white fuzzy coating for lack of a better description.What causes that? One bud has already dried up so I am sure the rest will do the same.

my kingfisher has fuzzy buds. Its like peach fuzz. Pretty sure its perfectly normal for certain types of clems.

Thank's. It's nice to know my clematis is normal.I sure hope the buds open but they really do look strange.I have been wanting Kingfisher so this is good to know in advance.
