Answer: Unfortunately, I am not able to locate information on any plant called clymadus. However, the clematis is a vining plant that is hardy outdoors in your area. Each fall it will yellow and lose its leaves in preparation for resting during the winter. This would be a normal occurrence. YOu might want to check with garden center personnel or your county extension or an experienced gardening neighbor to see if they can help you identify the plant. If you think it is a clematis, I would suggest you plant it outside immediately. Dig a generous hole, remove the pot, set the plant in a bit deeper than it is growing in the pot right now, replace the soil in the hole and firm it gently, then water it well to settle the soil. Last, add a few inches of organic mulch such as shredded bark over the root area but not touching the stem. Next spring, the plant may look quite dead, but be patient. It should eventually either leaf out along the stem or send up new shoots from the ground, possibly as late as well into June. Good luck with your plant!
