Clematis urophylla 'Winter Beauty'

Small, urn-shaped cream, fading to white, flowers. Yellowish anthers on white filaments. Evergreen. Not hardy and dies from phytophthora if overwatered. The form originated in Japan and the clone from which all European plants derive was called 'Winter Beauty' by Wim Snoeijer and Jan van Zoest. Wim Snoeijer says that this is a member of the 'Campanella group', but the International Register does not recognise this classification.
