Clematis wilt
The disease penetrates wounds to the stems and primarily affects large-flowered hybrids. It is caused by a fungus called ascochyta clematidina. Some times cutting back the infected stems to the ground will encourage new growth from below the soil. One way to avoid the problem is to plant Species Clematis instead of hybrids.
