Clematis 'Marcel Moser'

Large pale pink flowers with deeper pink stripe. Plant away from full sun to protect delicate flower colour. Similar to the more familiar 'Nelly Moser' but having longer, more pointed tepals. Raised by Moser et Fils in 1896. A seedling of 'Belisaire'. In 1912, William Robinson in his book 'The Virgin's Bower' lists this cultivar as "trusted to give lovely effects if culture and position be all [it] deserves."
