Clematis 'Daihelios' (previously 'Helios')

Nodding yellow, coconut scented, flowers which open completely flat. Brown-purple filaments with cream-yellow anthers. According to Christopher Grey-Wilson, writing in the March 2001 issue of 'The Garden', this cultivar seems to come true from seed and can flower within six months from a late-winter sowing.

Previously known, and widely described, as 'Helios'.
