which clematis is this?

East Yorkshire, United Kingdom Gb

I have lost the label. its evergreen. the flowers are pale green with purple/brown freckles on the inside. the leaves are small and curly. it is flowering 20' up hence the blurred photo




I think it might be Clematis cirrhosa var. purpurascens . If the marks are pronounced it will be the type 'Freckles'
Common name: Old man's beard, traveller's joy, virgin's bower
