Here is a mystery vine that comes up every year in my border. I've been pulling it out, because I have not planted a clem in this spot. Does anyone know what this is?

It's probably just a noxious viney weed, but thought I'd let it grow a while and check it out.

It could be a clematis, Angie. It looks like my c. Armandii.

Then again, it could be a noxious weed. Hilarious!

Looks like a clematis to me too. I'd let it go and see what type of flowers and growth you get from it.
