Congratulations are in order for Wim Snoeijer. Wim is responsible for the breeding of the Clematis STAR RIVER for the J. van Zoest nursery in Boskoop, the Netherlands. STAR RIVER is part of their Clematis Amazing® Series and has won the prestigious Glazen Tulip (Glass Tulip) award for best cut flower for 2014 which is presented each year by the Dutch flower auction FloraHolland. Along with Clematis STAR RIVER the series includes BLUE PIROUETTE as well as Clematis INSPIRATION. All three introductions are classified as being in the Diversifolia Group. I believe clematis enthusiasts as well as floral designers in this country should take notice as these three clematis should do a pirouette because they are indeed stars and inspirational. You did a fantastic job Wim!
