This is not a selling site and I am not on here trying to sell, but I do stock clematis Daniel Deronda
Clematis montana var.rubens has hardly any scent, montana var rubens Odorata ( as the name suggests ) has much stronger perfume
Scratch with your nail in one of the leaf axils, the joint where the new bud will form, see if it is green under the bark, if so it is OK. Which montana is it ?
Some good unusual plants on this thread

Clematis Etoile Violette is one of the best clematis ever raised, it has been around since c.1885. The deep violet purple colour is outstanding, over a long period, I personally think it grows best with a much stronger coloured rose, deep yellow looks really good with the yellow stamens on the clematis. In other words I think the Etoile Violette colour will make your rose look wishy-washy, just my opinion.
geranium himalayense, low growing spreader.
Best to give it another dab of rooting powder ( or use custard powder ) then repot. It is obviously still alive. This happens quite a lot with hardwood clematis cuttings. Top growth looks to be romping away but new roots take much longer, best not to disturb them if possible.
People like your neighbour, in my opinion, want to argue, shout, swear, and it hurts them much more if you rise above it and let the legal bods sort it, believe me it is worth every penny.
I have had experience of boundary and drainage dispute with my neighbour, my advice is NOT to take the law into your own hands. It is obviously illegal the action your neighbour has taken. Take advice from a local reputable solicitor and let them threaten your neighbour with court and costs and damage to your property.
Moerheim Beauty is one of the best. I grew some from seed, supposed to be Autumn Tints, all were yellow when they flowered, and tall. Named cultivars are best in my opinion.
