A truly elegant white large-flowering variety named after a Japanese river. The flowers open with pastel tones, maturing to white in the sunshine. The impressive blooms open flat and wide which makes the reddish centers stand out against attractive mint green foliage. From the Sugimoto nursery in Japan, ‘Ibi’ makes an attractive combination with the early blooming red ‘Fireflame’ or a strong pink such as ‘Fuschia Flash’. This Japanese clematis has repeat blooming, so prune old flowers after finished, and you will enjoy more blooms.
