Clematis – 2 year old vine shriveling


Why would my previously healthy 2 year old clematis suddenly shrivel and die? It is in sun most of the day, its roots are shaded, it bloomed for the first two years. It started growing this season, looking very healthy, with a number of flower buds. Suddenly within the last 5 days, it shrivelled up and looks dead. Could it simply be a lack of water? We haven’t had rain in about a week. The temps have ranged from 15 – 30 degrees C. I’m in south western Ontario. Thanks for any help.
