Two weeks ago I planted a healthy Lord Neville clematis. It was adapting well and climbing enthusiastically until yesterday evening, when I noticed it was limp and sickly. I made certain it had enough water, and hoped it would be happy again by morning. No such luck. I'm so afraid it's going to die. It's in good soil. I've given it MiracleGro fertilizer, and I've also used systemic insecticide and snail bait around it. Its roots are shaded all the time by garden phlox. It's leaves get morning sun. I can't imagine what's wrong. Any advice?
