Hi guys. I've just finished digging out my clem. armandii, Apple Blossom., after five years of superb flowering it just died on me. Snow maybe ? does wilt afftect this species ? I dont know. Anyway do you think its ok to plant another clem. in its place ( I have a small alpina, Helsingborj, that needs a home). Or a honeysuckle ? any experiences would be welcome.



as a general rule if a plant dies it is unwise to plant the same or closely related species into the same hole.
Honeysuckle would be fine as it is a different family of plants.
to be even more certain replace some of the soil totally and clean up any leaves that may be around from your clematis.

They're not usually affected by wilt - could have been the frost or cold winds. Shame, though.

Hillyc as it seems likely that frost and snow were the culprit there would be no problem in planting another clematis in the same spot.
