I I had bought a young Jackmanni clematis hybrid last year. It didnt seem to be doing all that well. This year I seem to have a several stems sprouting with little green like flowers on them. Is this still the clematis or shall I start over and try again?

No that does not sound like the clematis, but don't give up hope, some take a long time to establish or seem to dissapear for a year or two then pop up when you have forgotten about them, in my experience. That is why I have a large number, I thought they had died bought another put it in a different place, not to disturb the origional, just hoping it would re-apear, then when they did re appear a few years later I had forgotten the name! They are all well worth the early stress they caused me. Good luck.
