Clematis 'Saliut Pobedy'

Medium to large purple-pink flowers with a darker bar. The filaments are white and bear deep purple-red anthers. Professor Beskaravainaja in her 1998 book says that the name, which translates as 'salute to victory', is "in honour of the 30th anniversary of the victory of the Soviet people against facist Germany." The name, in Russia, is equivalent to the Nazi 'Sieg Heil!'.
