Clematis Dying Back?

These two clematis are growing beside each other. The one is healthy and the other one is dying off. I'm just wondering if it is normal for the one to be dying off so early. There is some new growth on it, but it's looking terrible.

Not sure where you are located, but you may have some kind of fungus that is causing that browning.

Too much rain (if you are experiencing that) can be one cause. Somethings there are just fungus among us (sorry...I had to go there). Fungus can look like white powder or green powder or even brown powder (at least all those I have experienced look that way. It is gross and I avoid touching it--so use gloves when you work with the sick plant).

The best solution is to cut it all back and look for the source (usually near the roots).

Our Penn State home extension office always says to apply a fungicide to the source. I don't use them, and prefer to wipe the plant down with warm water and a few drops of dish soap. Over the years I have been able to save some plants, and I have lost some. I don't do chemicals whenever possible so I am OK with what I do and my outcomes. That is just me.

You could always call your local home extension office and see if there is something specific they recommend.

I feel that you have some older vines and newer. You have some that bloomed much earlier and the older is dying back.Clean back the older ones and let nature take it's course!

There may be insects or a disease on one. I would use both an insecticidal soap and a fungicide

I do not have this particular plant but I have found that Neem Oil insecticidal soap will work for so many plant problems that I rarely have to use anything else.
It is a wonderful organic product that will not harm any plant.
Just try not to use anything in hot sun. You should spray both plants.
Neem Oil can be purchased in most garden center or online.

I would definitely trim off the dead/dying parts of your plant. (Affiliate Link)
