Hi! Can anyone help me to identify this one? I've searched clematis on the web and all my books and nursery websites to no avail so your help would be really appreciated. The photo is too big to upload, it has a large white flower, pale lilac bar in centre of tepals (there are 8 of them), crinkly edges (similar to Gillian Blades but tepals more rounded and flower size larger). The anthers are yellow and it is flowering now and last year it flowered again later. The flowers tend to hang downwards and have to be lifted to see them properly. Many thanks, Karen

Ok! I have managed to shrink the picture with help from Callum (15) - Knew there was a purpose to teens! Jon at Thorncroft thinks Gillian Blades, but I have Gillian Blades in the garden and this one has larger flowers is whiter and my Gillian doesn't have the blue bar - he could be right of course, but any other ideas? Thanks, Karen

Hi,
I don't know about the identity, but the flower size is impressive, or your hand is small! The first assumption must be true I think. Its a beautiful flower!
 
Regards,
Jack

Hi Jack! Yes, it is really something, I have large hands actually and this is the largest flower I have ever had on any of my clematis so far. I sometimes wonder if the flowers tend to be a bit smaller up here in Angus because of the cooler climate, but this one is quite impressive. It seems to have more 'petals' than the other GBlades and is a bluer white, my other GB being 'creamier and denser in colour'. Thanks anyway for your interest and compliment. Karen

Dear Karen,

Try Clematis 'Asagasumi'.

Take note that only the flowers of Clematis 'Asagasumi' in spring are that size with wavy tepals and the blue colouring. Summer flowers are usually plain white and the tepals being smooth.

Thanks Wim!

Having googled etc. the name you suggested it looks like this might be the right one! I only had first flowers this year, no later ones yet but there's still time for a late show! Thanks very much for helping me out.

Best wishes, Karen
