I have 5 clematis, and all do really well except for a white one called, I think, Belle of Woking.
Can anyone tell me if this clematis needs something the others don't? I have had it 4-5 years and it has produced ONE flower. The others all bloom their heads off, and they are all planted in front of the same fence.
I know there are different types of clematis that need cutting back at different times, depending on whether they bloom on new or old wood, or both. I don't know what in the world I'm doing wrong with this one. It's roots are shaded by low growing verbenas and cranesbills, but each year it sends up one very healthy looking stem, gets halfway up its support and then just quits. In fact, it seems to be there one day and gone the next. If something is eating it, I can't figure out why it doesn't eat the others, too.
Any have this plant? Any advice?
