Hi all, There are 2 climbers growing along with my passion fruit vine (thick brown stem). One has leaves like clematis, but the flower (dried one?) looks like a bunch of fluff. Is that a weed? Another one has elongated leaves as seen in the pictures below. I do not remember seeing any flowers on those stems. What are they?
Thanks in advance for your kind help.

    Clematis seedheads look like bunches of fluff.  One of the common names for wild Clematis is "old man's beard".

    I would say one was a clematis, by the look of the new shoots but they’re both tangled so can’t tell what’s coming from where 🙂

    Thank you all for your helpful comments. I think this is it. My OH seems to remember a few drooping flowers with freckles a few months ago. Any idea what the vine with elongated leaves in photo-2 is? Thanks.
