I don't know much about this plant, but that it grows in sub-alpine regions of the South Island of New Zealand. On our New Zealand holiday we stopped on Arthur's Pass, when crossing the island and found a delightful little nature trail, with a wealth of alpine flora, which included this beautiful little Clematis.
