Clematis flower "Omoshiro"

Omoshiro is slowly opening flowers - that's exciting process - look at this beauty.
It is not opened fully yet.... but you need to see it.... and don't judge the color of the flower yet - it will be much lighter (if the label on the pot is matching the plant.... ehe we'll see in few days).


Buds right before opening look somewhat surprising.

This early flowering (from May) japanese clematis grows up to 3m, flowers are white, edged with pink - big in size, flowering months V-VI, VIII-IX, can be planted in any spot, pruning group 2, suitable for zones 4-9.
Watch us out :)

Good Morning Ewa : )
You have the exact clematis I picked as my favorite during our cold dreary winter !
I know it is going to be a beauty so I will be back for sure to see it in it's full shining face : )

Great pictures Ewa! I love the ridges on the unfurled petals. I never manage to catch my clematis at this point. And I think the flower color of mine is too dark to really see the detail your photo reveals. Wonderful!

Hi, Ewa, Aren't clematis just among the most amazing plants/blossoms?? I will post a photo of my purple one on Twitter so you can see what we enjoyed. I love your pink one and look forward to seeing it fully opened! Enjoy, Ewa!
