This is a vine and it grows in a few places on my property. I'm about 60 miles southwest of Houston TX. The flower is purple and about 2" long.

It appears to be a Clematis. I'm not certain of the variety. Maybe C. 'Rooguchi'.
I garden for the pollinators.

Certainly looks like a Clematis bloom. Beautiful avatar Tee.

That was my feeling that it was some kind of clematis. I appreciate your responses. There are so many wild flowers on my out of control property that I'm sure I will be back for more IDs....

You can find examples of Clematis crispa and Clematis pitcheri by searching in Ranunculaceae, then select Clematis ..

Can you look under the flower, and check the leaves?

If I can find it I will take a photo of the leaves.
