Clematis 'Pied Piper'

Small, flattish, faintly scented, semi-double, flowers pale, creamy yellow at the centre of the tepal shading through pale pink to a deep pink margin. Yellow anthers on white filaments. Fruit heads persistent. So named because of the similarity of the flowers to the Pied Piper of Hamelin’s "gypsy coat of red and yellow" in Robert Browning's poem.
