Apparently, this (mostly) non-clinging and (mostly) herbaceous plant is likely a child of the parents 'Daniel Deronda' and C. integrifolia. From the prolific hybridizer Raymond Evison. (Obviously; the Evi- series.)

Also known as "Little Falcon," It's name translated from French.

The dark veins in both leaf and flower are what gets me about it.

I grow this prostrate, although it will climb. It's well mulched, under my wisteria and a small rose bush. Invisible the first year of planting; this second year, it is less than 2 feet long, and has four branches.

It is very different, so worth keeping. Mine is more sapphire blue than purple.
