wanted: clematis id?

averybird(Zone 5b, WA)August 12, 2005

Hello, I recently moved into a new house with an unnamed Clematis growing up the North side of an outbuilding. It bloomed back in mid-June, producing only three large flowers. The flowers are white, but with the faintest hint of lavender on some petals. I included the image below. Anyone have any ideas what this might be? Thanks! Kristi

Possibly Duchess of Edinburgh.

try Belle of Woking or Veronica's choice for comparison, if there is lavender in the petals. Duchess of Edinburg is more white, with greenish tinge. You can compare photos here:

I moved this clematis to the east side of the house and the flowers were much improved and a lovely lavendar color. I think it is Belle of Woking now. Thanks for the help!

I agree it probably is Belle of woking, try putting some tomato fertilizer on it next spring,and keep it well watered, to see if you get more blooms.......
