Hi, I live in Sandpoint, Idaho and it's now the 8th of June. I have a clematis plant on a trellis on the north side of my house and this will be its third summer there. Last summer it was beautiful and had tons of large dark purple blooms. So far this year, the only growth I'm seeing are new shoots (about a foot tall) near the base of the plant. The previous year's wood is not doing anything yet. If I break off a piece of the wood, the tips are brittle and dry but a few more inches in, they are light green. the base wood seems very dry and somewhat shredded. I'm thinking its still alive, just dormant, but since we are into June already, I'm beginning to wonder. I don't remember what variety it is but it went crazy last year, and starting coming out of dormancy in May. We had a very long, hard winter this past year and the spring has mostly been cool and rainy (55-60 degrees and raining a lot). I've been patient so far, but am not sure what to do with it. My honeysuckle vine on the west side of the house is already huge and blooming. Any suggestions?
