Clematis 'Micchann'

Medium sized, flat or flattish yellowish-white or pinkish-white flowers with a pinkish central bar; outside similar but with a greenish-yellow bar. Slightly scented. Filaments pale yellow-green, connectives yellow-green, anthers light orange-yellow. Seed heads persistent.

The pollen parent, Aquilegia does not belong to Clematis however both parents belong to the same Ranunculaceae family. The breeder considers this apomixis rather than intergeneric hybridisation.

The cultivar epithet ‘Micchann’ is a nickname used by the Registrant for his wife.
