Clematis-montana-Doctor-Penelope3It is striking not only in its white flowers, but moreover in its colourful foliage. The leaves are dark green when unfolding, readily changing to deep purple.

While the foliage is in this stage the relatively small flowers appear. These are single, white and about 5cm in diameter. Later the foliage colours back to dark green. ‘Doctor Penelope’ is truly unique in its colour and looks great against walls, trellis or in a tree.

Available in Europe.
