Clematis courtoisii 'Daiyu'

Small- to medium-sized, white flowers with partial, irregular, dark greyish purple streaking along some midveins, occasionally splaying at tip to give broken patch (and some tips instead with pale green cusp). Filaments, connectives and anthers dark greyish purple.

Raised from seeds of courtoisii collected from Tianmu mountain, Zhejiang Province, in 2012

Named after Lin Daiyu, the heroine of "The Dream of the Red Mansions", a classical Chinese novel. Care must be taken not to confuse this with ‘Evipo083’, which has unfortunately been given the trade designation DAIYU.
