My jackmani Clematis leaves are turning yellow. The plant just started growing and is not fully developed yet.

What is wrong with the plant? Is it dying?

Yellow leaves can be a symptom of over watering or a mineral deficiency. Clematis need regular watering but is it is important not to let them become waterlogged. Clematis are heavy feeders. The American Clematis Society endorses Gro-Power Fertilizer because it is an organic soil conditioner as well as a fertilizer and it contains the necessary minerals to keep clematis healthy.
