|Weather is the most common culprit but there is something called clematis wilt that can cause otherwise and previously healthy vines to suddenly die down. There's no cure for this problem and the experts are still divided as to the cause but it can affect some plants in some years but not all plants all the time. What the experts do agree on is cutting away the affected vines, down to ground level. Wish I had more to share with you!
