    You can search on this website which allows you to enter tepal/flower colour, stamen colour, flowering time and anything else you know to whittle down the possibilities - http://www.clematis.hull.ac.uk/new-clemlistsearch.cfm

    That looks to me like Clematis Duchess of Edinburgh ....... colours, stamens and flowering time right and it looks similar to the one I grew in a previous garden.

    They both have the most beautiful flowers - are they difficult to grow/get hold off?

    Duchess of Edinburgh is certainly available from most online clematis suppliers ... I've grown it in a couple of gardens ... Not vigorous but worth giving it really good conditions image

    I thikn they're both readily available - certainly online they are.

    I've moved my Duchess to a better spot as they seem to make a lot of foliage growth, and the flowers are well beyond that. I think Richard mentioned that last year when someone else had an issue. It's certainly what I've found with it, hence the move to a spot where it can scramble through other planting, rather than just being against a fence. image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Yes that's how I found it was happiest
