Last month I bought two Jackman Clematis vines in 2 gallon containers.
One is doing fine, but the other, planted four feet away, has lost two of
the three main stems the plant had when I bought it. I've never had
vines before, so before I panic and replace the troublesome vine, I need
to know whether all future growth will come from that one stem only, or
will additional stems start growing from the root ball? If you want, you
can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!
Thanks for the info, but I guess my primary question was not answered. Will
more stems eventually grow out of the root ball or will all future growth
spring from the only stem remaining on this plant? Remember, I have no
experience with this or any other type of vine.
it should grow more stems from the root ball each year. you
might want to baby it a bit this summer, keeping it watered &
mulched so it doesn't dry out & get further stressed.
i've bought some pretty sad looking close-out clematis & had
them survive. it may take it a few years to recover & catch up
with the other one though.
