- Shoots wilt and die, starting at the shoot tip or a leaf and spreading downwards, even as far as the base. The leaf stalks blacken when infection spreads from the blade and freshly infected stems blacken internally.

Note that wilting can also be caused by other problems such as waterlogging, graft failure, insect or slug damage. However the other symptoms described do not appear with these.

clematis wilt

Question from Maggie Ricketts

How should I best treat clematis wilt, which is now affecting 3 of my clematis? Do plants with 'wilt' recover typically, or only rarely? Will it spread to others in my garden?

Can you please tell me if the above is fatal or does the plant recover?
