Clematis 'Fuyu no Tabi' (Masako Takeuchi, 1994) has become a favorite white, large-flowered clematis here in recent years. The name translates to "winter journey" and is the breeder's reference in Japanese to the song cycle "Winterreise." composed by Franz Schubert. The lovely upfacing flowers are quite large (6-7 inches across) and in their whiteness remind us that winter has just passed. The delicate addition of the central boss of white filaments with light red brown anther tips is a subtle touch.

May to June; August to September.  6-8 ft.

Groom this clematis after it has completed its spring bloom. Be sure to feed after you prune. This will encourage new growth and late summer flowers.
