Kitty, you are speaking of Clematis wilt which causes the foliage to turn 
black.  This does not kill the plant but must be cut back to good growth which 
could be below soil line.  The large blooming C are prone to that such as henryi 
and Nelly Moser.  Plant your clematis deeper to help prevent this.  I'm sure 
you know this.  
    My favorite C are the vitacella group which are longer, smaller and more 
prolific bloomers, generally speaking and are a  3 pruning group (meaning you 
prune to within a few nodes of the soil line early spring after growth has 
started)  I like this group of Cs  because it gives you a nice clean start with 
the new growing season particularly if growing into/with another plant such as 
a shrub, rose or another C.
