Edit ** March 2015 I have just found out that this is Akebia quinata aka Chocolate vine, not Clematis at all.
My horizons of what I thought Clematis was and its potential growth habit have been wildly broadened. Some of the 'unknown' plants from earlier in the year I am now quite confident are clematis. I'll go back through my archives and tag them accordingly.
This one is stunning and the flowers almost look artificial. It was a hidden gem with most of it growing over to the neighbours side of the fence and obscured from our view.
