This was in a batch of seedlings from BCS seed 'crispa'.

Hi Richard,
Excellent white form, but is this its first flower as quite often (as you are probably well aware) next years flowers will give a better indication of its true form and colour.
I'm sure Keith will have a few words to say about it, but if it stays pure white then you may be onto a winner.

You have hit the button on what I would have to say, Steve, especially if it does stay really white.  I have a couple which are almost grey (strange shade of lavender) but nothing that is pure white, which is extremely rare.

Hello Richard
 Nice white plant , to tell the truth I have forgotten what the colour  they should be , I have a number of plants of C. crispa , I can not remember where I got the original seeds from but most of my plants have been of a white inner with shades of pale blue on the outer tips and some they looked a bit pinkish .   I sent some seeds of the latter to Mike Brown at his request . Have not heard how they turned out .  The last lot of seeds of C.crispa I grew are now growing in among  the thorn less blackberry's
in some light they look whitish , but that may be due to the growing conditions .
Not one of my favourite clematis , a bit to vigorous , I have to fight my way past one near the back door .  Congratulations on the pure colour , hope it stays that way .
All the best    Ron.C.
