Clematis 'Alba'

Genus: Clematis.

Species: Clematis integrifolia.

Yes, another integrofilia. I'm so pleased with them. This one stayed more compact, though I had it potted longer than the others. Probably the same size, about 3 ft. The flowers are stark white with a violet understrip that is just lovely though not really large flowers. Mine was planted a little high and suffered for it, so when planting remember to make sure that all root is well covered, even going so far as planting a little wood. I like a good thick mulch which was my resolution, since in my chill I use mulch often to avoid rotting and other moisture issues from the heavy cold soil. I expect a big and beautiful clem to match my other two next year. Again, flowering all season since early spring.
