Clematis 'Pink Whiskers'

Small to medium sized, strongly scented, flowers: deep pink above on first opening, maturing to mid-pink, slightly paler pink beneath. Stamens 2 cm long; filaments white; anthers pale yellow. Fruit-heads persistent.

So named because its stamens look like long whiskers. Flowers reminiscent of montana var. wilsonii.
