    Drought or damage to the stem. Clematis wilt starts at the bottom of the plant and works up. Drought starts at the top and works down.

    I would look for something having eaten the stem somewhere.

    I would guess drought ... we've had a dry winter/spring/early summer, and that clem is under a tree which will be taking most of the moisture, as well as shading off any rain.  A couple of buckets full of water  at least three times a week from early March throughout the growing season is my remedy.
