Clematis 'Alba Luxurians'

Viticella type. White flowers with green-tipped tepals and a pale green bar on the reverse. The amount of green depends on the amount of sunlight the flowers get - a lot of sun will result in less green colouring. Very deep purple anthers. This most unusual cultivar was raised by Veitch & Son c.1900. Vigorous and free-flowering. The variety has received the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit.
