Back in the 1970's, '80's and '90's, Estonian hybridizers Uno and Aili Kvistik were developing numerous clematis cultivars for Soviet bloc countries. Many of their cultivars, like 'Romantika,' 'Viola,' and 'Mikilite' have made their way into gardens in North America, however, Clematis 'Bella' is rarely seen. This is a shame. The rounded white flowers have six sepals which have cream-colored central bars. The filaments and anthers are whitish as well. It is the purple red anther connectives at the tips of the filaments that offer a dash of color to the pristine flowers.
