Essex, United Kingdom
I planted a Clematis Chevalier earlier this year and it seemed to be growing reasonably well and forming flowers. These flowers hadn't opened and when I came back from a week long holiday it looked very sick indeed and all the leaves have gone crusty and dry. It doesn't seem to be wilting and given the amount of rain we've had I didn't think it would be lack of water. Before all the rain i was giving it a reasonable amount of water and then the rain took over. Any ideas what could be wrong with it? There is another clematis ("magenta" i think) right next to it and it seems to be ok at the moment.
