Clematis should do well in morning sun assuming the soil is of at least average fertility, the plant receives enough water during the growing season so that the soil is moist yet not soggy and the root zone is well mulched. There is an old saying about clematis, "The first year it sleeps, the second year it creeps, the third year it leaps." Maybe that is what your plant is doing and so as long as it looks healthy patience is in order.
