Climbing through a medley of shrubs in a partly shaded corner of our garden, Clematis 'Albina Plena' always surprises us when her clean white bell-shaped flowers begin to open. The four primary sepals taper in spidery fashion and enfold a cluster of narrower white sepals within. In width flowers measure more than 3 inches, large enough to be clearly seen from a distance. The short filaments are not readily visible, but a charming red blotch at the base of the sepals (at the top of the flower) adds a dash of color. This is one of many lovely clematis hybridized by Magnus Johnson, the Swedish author of an astounding monograph on clematis. This cross between C. fauriei and C. siberica (F2 hybrid) was released in 1982.

Vines from Clematis Section Atragene have lantern-shaped flowers. Their silky seed heads are attractive throughout the season. These bloom on old wood. Prune or tidy up after bloom or cut back hard soon after bloom to revitalize. All of our Clematis are two year old plants that are suitable for immediate planting in your garden.
