Clematis tibetana subsp.. vernayi var vernayi 'Orange Peel'

Nodding, golden yellow flowers with thick tepals ageing to deep orange-yellow. Purple-brown stamens. Just before opening, the buds are almost globular in shape. (Wim Snoeijer asserts that flowers of the original plants in this collection did not darken with age. He also tells us that the real 'Orange Peel' can be distinguished from all other tanguticas by a tiny little bulge at the end of the open tepal; if it's not there, it's not 'Orange Peel'.)
