Design IdeasA perfect flowering vine for espalier onto flat treillage in high profile locations. Perfect to mark a front door with abundant blooms. Twine up and over wood or metal arches at gates and entries. Drape over fences in narrow sideyards for short range view of flowers from windows. Train up narrow railings and posts on stoop or porch. Unique foliage and golden stamens are best appreciated up close near terrace and patio.

History:
A seedling selected in 1992 from a cross-made at Blackthorn Nursery, England by renowned plantsman Robin White. A hybrid between Clematis paniculata and Clematis marmoraria-both evergreen species native to New Zealand. An Avalanche of pure white flowers cascade from previous season's wood in spring providing a superb contrast with the pinked edge dark leathery green foliage. This beautiful vine is equally content climbing on a wall or rambling along the garden floor.
Lore:
In its homeland of New Zealand, this plants ancestor, C. marmoraria is an evergreen rock hugging crevice plant with little resemblance to the resulting cultivar.
