Double Clematis (Help with ID please).

We have this on a trellis up against the dining room wall. The label has disintigrated, would anyone be able to help with an ID please. We have searched through a lot of Clematis catalogues, but are struggling to find an exact match. Thank you.

So pretty - take a look at the clematis page - several come to mind Milky has one very much like it but no name or theres Spritzehenry's 'Vyvyan Pennell' and Amy's Barbara Jackman.
It may be easier to name when the centre opens.

Annie, Carole and Angie, thanks for your comments.

Denise it IS Vyvyan Pennell. Thank you. We recognised the name. As you correctly say it looked quite different when fully open and also easier to identify.

It was Jaques photo in the GoYpedia that also confirmed it for us.

I thought it must be VP as well, it's absolutely gorgeous. I tried to grow it once, but it didn't like my waterlogged soil. I might try it again one day, now that I'm no longer gardening on a bog!

Good luck Karen, if your successful, the flowers are stunning.
