ollected in 1947 in Tibet by Ludlow, Sherriff and Elliot. Clematis tibetana ssp. vernayi var. vernayi 'Orange Peel' bears nodding lemon yellow flowers that open from rounded buds and eventually expand with an acute upturn at the tips of the sepals. As they age, the fleshy flowers darken to orange. Lightly bluish green foliage is deeply dissected. This is the true 'Orange Peel' as described in the RHS Clematis Registry. All of our Clematis are two year old plants that are suitable for immediate planting in your garden.
