Yesterday the flowers were very perky. We've had some really strong

Could it be the wind? The leaves look healthy enough.
Possibly wind; possibly dry at the roots (have you been watering it
regularly recently? Too much?); possibly clematis wilt (or as a
colleague used to say 'clematis wont').
Thanks for your reply, I have been out again and it looks like the
damaged flowers are directly in the wind the other side of the plants
are fine. I suppose I could find them all wilted tomorrow.
I just check to see if the soil is dry by digging my fingers into it.
I'm a sew and sow!
