<< Please explain the planting deeper thing. >>

Andrea, the web site Kitty gave provides an explanation.  I have always heard 
it is an injury and this is one of the reasons I use the landscape pot to 
protect the fragile stems from human/animal/insect damage.  I have only 
experienced the wilt with one plant & that is Nelly Moser which they say is a hi risk 
one.  The wilt did start higher upon the plant & progressed down.  I dealt with 
it for several yrs, each time cutting it back & it would regrow but decided 
it wasn't worst the trouble & removed it.
    I liked the web site you gave, Kitty, and progressed to the Amer Clematis 
Society page.
    When planting a new clematis it is important to pinch out the leaves at a 
node to promote branching and a fuller plant.  Vertical plants provide addtl 
opportunity for plants and a chance to add decor to the walls of our garden.
