Help finding Roscoea

Excuse me for chipping in here - Fidget, I've just planted a pot of R. purpurea in our west-facing front garden - I added lots of compost as the soil is pretty free-draining.  At this time of day it gets direct sunshine from about now - do you think it'll be happy there or does it need more shade?

I think I should've grown redcurrants instead of autumn-fruiting raspberries - they fruit so well and love the spot so much they're a bit more rampant than I'd bargained.  

I think when I'd had them before they'd not been so happy with the soil as they are here. 

I've just taken the Sanseveria, a succulent (echevaria?) and a cactus outside and stood them in a tub of water.  They all need potting on - they're totally potbound, but if they go in bigger pots they'll be too big for the windowsills

More than likely  - the ex was a builder - I had to paint all my tools pink or he and the men walked off with them 

Is this a Clematis?
