It has such a profusion of little blooms.
Kell, looks like you've got us stumped if it's not one of the ones already suggested...maybe if you post this over in the Clematis forum one of the experts over there recognize it.
Thanks Oladyhoo, mine is more pagoda shaped.
Thanks Liz. I have emailed Shirley, Shirley1md, I think she is an expert. If that doesn't work then, I will. Thanks all for trying for me.
So... any particular reason this wouldn't be Clematis terniflora? From what I can see here, it fits that species perfectly, but is not any of the similar species (Clematis virginiana, Clematis ligusticifolia, Clematis drummondii...) I'm aware of.
Hi Patrick. I was comparing my pics to those in PlantFiles and mine really doesnot have the same shape, color or even leaves. I think the size and the multitude of flowers is similar though.
Is your Clematis more of a shrub type, or vine? how large you say it is? And can you get a photo of the leaves? The reason for all the questions is it could be one the C. Heracleifolia group. Here's a link to the C. Heracleifolia Mrs. Robert Brydon which looks close to yours.

That is a great website, Gldandrews! I wish their photos were bigger though. My eyes don't seem to focus on small pics anymore. I just can't seem to see the detail. But after a google search, you sure nailed it. exactly! Thanks so much.
I don't think it is Sweet Auntumn clematis. My Sweet Autumn does not have any lavender or blue color in it. Here are a couple of links. Be careful, It can be very invasive.
There is a good close-up about halfway of this page.
