This has large blooms 6 to 7 inches. A real stand out when planted around purple flowering plants. The second flowering has a pink tinge to them that fades to white. Blooms in early Spring and late Summer. I have it growing in full sun and it does well.

This was grown by W. S. Callick but named and introduced by Alister Keay from New Zealand Clematis Nurseries in 1958.
