This is a pretty clematis, with flowers that are almost white, but with a hint of green. It is common in South-Eastern Australia, growing well along the coast and also inland in the drier western regions. It produces an abundance of flowers in the spring. We successfully grew some from seed and they are doing well in our local Park. I have one in my garden, but just as it was getting close to its firsy flowering, I accidently cut it off near the base. It has recovered well and I am hopeful that it will flower soon, perhaps this spring!
