Hi Hogweed, thank you for the advice. I'll crtainly take it.
This is my lazarus clematis. It 'died' for about 5-7 years and then reappeared when we were replacing a fence post
How interesting! Exactly the same thing happened with my Montana, B3. She grew much too huge, so we cut her down to the ground. Suddenly, six years later, she re-appeared.
By thw way, I have a clematis that looks exactly the same as yours in your picture but I have no idea what she's called. Do you?
We have this clematis, but don't know the name of it either - is it the same as yours Danae dan-Ah-ee?
Mine is a he. I'm not sure. I think it's clematis niobe. The sages in the site id it for me last year. I think that's what he's called - even if he's got a girlie name.
I don't think it's the same as yours GD no purple stripe that I can see..
I think mine looks a bit more like B3's, GD
B3, of course s/he is! For me, though, a thing of such beauty has to be a "she^. And here comes the pedantic point, clematis is grammatically feminine. Well, in Greek, at any rate.

And, probably, worse for a boy called Niobe?
Here is my Niobe, I think.
Hi Danae, I googled clematis Niobe and all I found was star shaped, deep red flowers consisting of 6 petals, like this: https://www.wyevalegardencentres.co.uk/shop/clematis-niobe-0850021950/
and much like B3's. Yours appears to have only four.
I imagine it could come in different colours too but, surely, not in different form?
