A sad time in my garden- my beautiful 5 year old purple clematis that grows on the front of my house in full bloom just withered & died. It is in full sun but with it's feet covered by rocks and other growth and has put on quite a show for the last 3 years. I sadly cut it back to about 4 feet about a month ago, hoping it will recover but no luck yet. Any ideas why this would happen?
