Climber ID

Good Morning all!
I planted this climber last year. It t didn't flower, but it did grow big and took over the whole fence panel. Its leaves are different from my other clematis, is it a clematis? If so what type please

    Looks like a clematis to me but there are thousands now so who knows which one?

    Don't prune it in case it's one that flowers on stems produced the previous year but do be sure to train both new and existing stems as horizontally or diagonally as possible as that will increase both flower power and foliage coverage lower down.

    Give it its annual spring feed of slow release fertiliser for clematis, roses or tomatoes and make sure it doesn't get thirsty.  That should ensure some flowers to help with identity.
