Originally collected in Korea by a member of the Japanese Clematis Society. Clematis patens 'Manshuuki' means "Manchurian Yellow" (Was WADA'S PRIMROSE). This was later introduced to Europe by Kiyoshi Wada and given the name 'Wada's Primrose'. We have grown it for many years with other cream colored clematis to determine if it is the most yellow. It is not. The 6-7 inch flowers open a greenish cream color in our cool springs but soon age to cream. The flower has an elegant shape with tapering sepals. Its filaments are white with light yellow anthers. All of our Clematis are two year old plants that are suitable for immediate planting in your garden.

May-June, August-September.  8 ft.

Early flowering in the spring on the previous year's growth. If you hard prune, you eliminate most or all of the early blooms. Instead, groom this after flowering by cutting back the top one-third to one-half of some stems. This encourages new growth for possible summer bloom.
