Anyone know what this vine is growing in NE Texas? It was growing near a natural spring onto a fence. Has bell shaped pale lilac and white flowers. ( flowers wilted a bit before I could get a picture)

It appears to be one of the "leather flower" type of Clematis but I'm not familiar enough with the different species to offer an ID on the exact species.

It does resemble Clematis. It mostly reminds me of Clematis (Clematis crispa). But these also grow in that area.

Clematis (Clematis pitcheri)

Looked it up, that's exactly what it is. This is what it looked like before it wilted.
