Took me two days but the worst is over. Now everything looks so nekkid and man, am i sore. I'm holding my breath for my clematis. I've got a Polish Spirit that I've had for yeeears. It's certainly time for it to be pruned but I only see one budding leaf cluster on some older upper growth. I sure hope it's not pooping out on me.:( i'll give it another week and see what happens.

Foz, I thought Polish Spirit came up new from the roots every year. My Etoile Violette did, and it's related to P.S. I bet you'll see little shoots poking through the ground if you look close.

Sweetle, this clematis has done both...produced shoots on old growth AND sent up new shoots. i'm hoping the new growth will come but i don't see much happening above ground right now.
