Raised in the USA by Steffen Clematis Nursery, New York State, and introduced into Europe by the author. This plant will produce some large 15cm (6in) wide flowers from the previous season's stems in the early summer and then a good crop of later flowers on the current season's stems. A well-shaped full rounded flower, the tepals recurve slightly and are a bronze/purple in colour. The anthers are greenish bronze. Needs a light background to show the flowers to best effect.
