Clematis alpina 'Stolwiyk Gold' is unusual in the world of Clematis because of its yellow gold leaves, a trait it shares with very few other Clematis. This was developed and introduced by the Dutch firm C. G. Stolwijk & Co. in 2006 and, during the time that it has been in the trade, it has slowly developed a following. One reason for this is the fact that, it blooms early, even in somewhat limited light, and blooming will often repeat several times throughout the summer. A second reason is that the yellow green to gold yellow color of the foliage does not turn green as it matures but persists throughout the growing season. The foliage alone lights up a part shade area. The flowers are lovely - bell-shaped with 4 to 8 violet sepals dangling from red stems. Ultimately the sepals open broadly revealing the whorls of staminodes at the interior of the flower.
