Clematis 'Supernova'

Large, double, flattish flowers opening deep pink along broad midrib, shading to narrow, mid-pink margins, the margins becoming broader and paler - to very pale pink - with age. Filaments and anthers white. Whilst the parentage is unknown, Robin Mitchell suspects that this is 'Star Burst' self-seeded - although 'Evipo039' DIAMANTHINA was briefly grown nearby and may have been involved.

Not to be confused with SUPER NOVA from Wim Snoeijer in Holland.
