I have this pretty one blooming it's head off right now. Trouble is, I don't know it's name, the nursery tag is long gone. Any ideas? Sorry, pic is a bit blurry...

It does. The name is kind of ringing a bell somewhere in my memory also... Rolling my eyes. I think that may be it...
I got it at a nursery I used to work at, and I know we sold that variety... THANKS

Comtesse de Bouchaud was my guess too; once you've had this lovely and showy pink-lavender clematis you'll never forget it. I left mine behind at my old house; perhaps I could find a place to plant it again here - I still see it at nurseries, and most of them have wonderful sales on right now. Well, thank you, you've talked me into it! LOL!
