Hello - I'm sitting our newly bought home in Steveston and admiring the patio view, when it dawns on me that 70% of the Clamatis Armandiis vine facing me is looking glaringly dead, dead, dead. Brown leaves everywhere and a pitiful sight. I'm new to gardening, but love it so far and was wondering if there is any hope for this new vine in our lives. The past owners may have neglected it, I wouldn't put it past the wind having a hand in it's demise?? Is it beyond saving or is this normal?? Should I prune it down and hope for the best or leave it and see what happens. Sure appreciate any votes of confidence, I here this vine is lovely in the spring and smells to die for... erp! I mean, divine.
