clematis tangutica - leaves have gone brown

Question from Lorna Dyter

I have bought a new clematis tangutica and as it was only in a 9" pot, it had loads of leaves on it and was apparently 2 years old when I got it. I had not prepared the ground where it was going to be planted, so I put it in the greenhouse (background heat only when temperature drops below 5 deg C). I see that all the leaves have gone brown, they have not dropped off but the plant does not look very healthy as a result. Is this normal for these clematis, or have I done it harm by putting in greenhouse?

Clematis Tangutica

Question from Lorna Dyter

Is it OK to grow this clematis in a large pot please? Having lost 2 late flowering clematis in the garden, I want to make sure I keep this one (when I purchase it). Also when is the best time to plant the clematis?

Comment from Miriam Mesa-Villalba

The flowers are followed by fluffy silver seed heads which persist well into the winter and closely resemble those of the wild clematis or old man's beard.This can be a bushy enough plant to support the nests of small birds such as goldfinch or linnet.
