This was supposed to have been a Florida Sieboldii, but obviously it's something else. Anyone got any ideas who this really is?

Looks like Clematis (Clematis viticella 'Venosa Violacea')

Ha! I'll bet you're right! Some of the photos in the database look very much like mine, and that was one of the clems available from that supplier. But their online pics look more violet. Thanks!

It's a pretty distinctive bloom. I had one years ago, it was gorgeous! Look how many blooms are on some of those shots.

Oh, it's definitely a pretty little thing! I'm impressed that this tiny plant has blooms already. Darn thing isn't even a foot tall yet. But it's just in the wrong spot. I only planted it out about 2 weeks ago, so I'm thinking I should move it sooner rather than later, since it can't stay where it is.
