Clematis. White. Josephine

For my records. Looking for the label so I can name it. Found it, it's Josephine but had very little colour this year.

Is it C. Jackmanii alba? That has a slight purple tinge to the centre of the sepals and twisted green at the ends.

I don't think so Siris, I have the label somewhere. It's just finding it. I usually keep all the labels in a filing cabinet in the greenhouse. I was too cold this afternoon to spend time looking through it. It was a freezing wind up the garden this afternoon.

That is a beauty, I looked more closely and saw the pale pink on the white flowers.

Would you believe it's Josephine. It's very pale this year with hardly any colour in it. No wonder I couldn't think which one it was. It was quite pink last year.... I wondered if the cold winds we kept getting in summer were responsible for its change in colour, or rather...no colour....lol

The paler clems tend to colour better with part shade. The sun can bleach the colour out...and yes, i would say cold also has that effect sometimes. It still looks very beautiful though!

So pretty, our Josephine is a poor sulky girl I am afraid...

Fingers crossed it flowers again next year. I cut it right down last week.
