I planted a Perrin's Pride clematis a couple of years ago and it has never done well. Leaves and petals open up distorted, and the lower leaves turn brown. It doesn't look wilty though.
My photos don't capture it as well as I'd like (should have taken them earlier in the season); I'm not sure whether the holes are related to the issue or something else.
Could this be a virus? Wilt? I'm prepared to dig it up and replace it, but should I avoid putting another clematis there?
(I'm in north Alabama, zone 7b.)
