t has taken our Clematis breeder years and years, but finally we managed to make a Clematis in a colour that we have been chasing for years: white. Yes, that's right: a white Clematis!

A magical flower

She was our unicorn. A mythical creature, not yet seen before, but we knew IF we found her your world would undoubtably never be the same. Breeding a Clematis as a cut flower is a process that takes decades. It’s multiple rounds of testing, testing and testing again. To be called ‘amazing’ you truly have to be just that. 

And then it happened. We found our unicorn. The first white Clematis cut flower in the Amazing® family. We called her ‘Clematis Amazing® Vienna’, after the national capital of Austria. A country known for its snow covered Alps. 

Testing testing… 

We sent this enchanting flower to several designers to test her out. And they LOVED her. And, honestly, what’s not to love? Big, pearl white flowers; bright green leaves on curly stems, and potential to star in so many themed designs. Weddings, winter, vintage, you name it. 

The mirror shoot 

Pascal and Michelle from The House of Artz teamed up with House of Luce and created a beautiful Christmas table setting in Amsterdam. It’s mirrors, it’s candles, it’s flowers. It’s a dream. 
As we fell in love with his table setting, Pascal fell in love with Vienna: “Finally a white flower that stands out in winter designs”

"Just look at this insane Clematis⁣"

Joseph Massie, one of Europe’s top botanical artists, tested it from this Liverpool studio (UK) and his review warmed our hearts: 

"Could this sweet, sweet baby maybe just be the VERY VERY BEST thing I’ve ever, ever made?⁣ JUST LOOK AT THIS INSANE CLEMATIS!⁣
⁣I’ve had the pleasure to design with this sensational new cultivar for the past week - and let me tell you it is truly a remarkable bloom - one set to become a popular inclusion in all of my weddings next year!⁣"

Big, huge, colossal!  

The Romanian Nicu Bocancea must have strong big hands to hold a bouquet like that! Nicu: “This flower is amazing!”. Well, so is this design! Wow!

Round and round we go 

Dutch Hanneke Frankema used Vienna in a round, wintery design. Complimentary to her intriguing style, she used a framework to support the Clematis Amazing® Vienna accompanied by other white flowers from the Marginpar assortment: Phlox Icecap, Astrantia Billion Star® and Callistephus Buttons White. Hanneke: "I love the curly stems of the leaves, and that colour is absolutely beautiful."

The enchanting forest 

Another creation by The House of Artz is this enchanting image. Pascal also makes high end wedding designs and seeing this white Clematis he immediately named Vienna "A must have for weddings”.

From Vienna to Russia 

Dmitry Turcan is a big fan of our Clematis and uses the Amazing® series in many of his creations. We send Vienna to St. Petersburg and Dmitry loved it: “It’s fantastic to see a white Clematis at last”.

A white Christmas 

Henri Pierik made several Christmas designs with the Vienna for the Dutch high-end floral magazine DPK. Henri: "What a great product to work with. The colour is truly white, very innovative. I was amazed at the vase life. After our shoot they lasted for another 14 days!"
