Hi, I have 2 clematis avalanche. 1 I planted last year which flowered this year and is looking a bit sad now - brown leaves etc. The other I planted a few week ago and is growing lik the clappers..already taken over the size of the other one. 

Areclematis avalanche supposed to die back a bit after flowering?!! What is wrong with the plant that bloomed this yr? Pics below:

    Cold probably pokhim. It's been a spell of frost and cold windy weather in many areas, and they can be a bit susceptible when new, young growth gets a blast at the wrong moment. Wind is also very drying, so it may neeed a good watering. It'll come back. You can trim off any dead bits, back to a leaf joint. image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
