is that Clematis cirrhosa?
Mine has always been a waste of space. It either goes brown from too hot and dry in summer or from cold in winter. A few flowers some years if I'm lucky. I cut it right back to the ground early last year, kill or cure (rather hoping for kill), It made a lot of healthy looking growth in spring, then went brown in places. No flowers yet
