The Viticellas are my favourite Group of clematis, but I also like the Viorna Group, small bell flowers in amazing colours,  and the Tangutica Group, mainly yellows which flower through until October, followed by beautiful seedheads.

Spectacular! There is something a little 'alien' about the seedheads too.

#Yes, I agree, also, the seedheads are huge in comparison to the flower size

I think so, too, Brian, the coloured clematis looks like Ville de Lyon.

Got this clematis pitcheri from a pal in Chicago, it grows wild in Illinois.

I think that is definitely clematis terniflora, was previously maximowiksiana ( something like that ) and you will have to dig the seedlings up, they will be deep rooted, cutting the tops off will increase the vigour from the rootstock, don't let it seed again, I will have a few seedlings if you have any to spare.
