Clematis 'Chrissie Wright'

Medium sized, flattish flowers, very pale pink inside, outside with bar suffused dark purplish pink (like ‘Tetrarose’) on 3 or 4 of the tepals. Filaments and anthers opening yellow, maturing to cream. A seedling found beneath the presumed parent (‘Tetrarose’) but with flowers twice its size and beautifully scented.

The upper photograph shows two flowers of 'Chrissie Wright' flanking a flower of the presumed parent 'Tetrarose'.
