Took this photo this morning - had posted a photo of her last time it bloomed but no identification as yet; so I'm trying again.

It just isn't ringing a bell with me. I have Nelly Moser but it isn't an exact match to my eyes. Here's my Nelly Moser but it well may appear differently in TX.

Arlene, I think you're right.

I'm not sure of it but it is the closest I can come. Perhaps others can post their opinions.

I'm well aware that your photo and mine differ in the number of sepals but that can happen with many clem's.

Hello all. I am recently retired from teaching. I am updating my clematis collection which many of the plants have been moved to better locations on our property. I got into clematis by a wonderful woman who owned with her husband The Garden Spot. This is near Buffalo, NY. She sold me some 16 varieties. I have lost a few to too shady or harsh winters. I have moved some around but did not update my journal. Now retired, this is what my summer task is to do. Problem is that I am confused which clematis is which by my poor notes and the tags long gone in the soil.
So, I am taking photographs as they bloom and printing them up to confirm which is which in my journal and map.
I have 13 planted. Six have bloomed or are blooming. ( ironically they seem to love this extremely wet spring!) I am sure of many of them. Like Asao, C. alpina Helsingborg A.G.M., Barbara Jackman, Royal Velvet and Sweet Autumn.
But, can anyone help me confirm the others? My notes state that there once were planted but moved or died the following:
The President, Elsa Spath, Ramona, General Sikorwski(sp?), Dr Ruppel, Recta and Multi Blue.
Two early ones look so similar. Ramona, and The President.

Hello again,
Cheryl here. I realized I have to upload one image at a time .
These are three different clematis I am unsure of. The first and last image in this entry are of one species. Is it Ramona or The President, or another?
The second image is which clematis? It is light bluish pale violet blooming now.
The third image , could it be Elsa Spath? It was deeper in color when it first bloomed. Similar in intensity to image one and four , but different center.
All these images were taken today, June 25, 2019.

My Jackamani does ok in front of house. It could use more sun but the trees next door limit its hours of direct sun.
I had my Barbara Jackman do well this spring in my ❤️ shaped garden with Bleeding Hearts, Hellibores, Ferns and Hostas.
Asao also did well right by the lake despite this rainy weather. The last image is Asao at its end of blooming. I think it blooms a second time in the season?

Perhaps it would help you more to look them up on the NGA database since they can vary in color intensity.

The President:
Clematis 'The President'

Ramona:
Clematis 'Ramona'

Many give a second bloom around August/September. Here's Asao:
Clematis 'Asao'

Elsa Spaeth:
Clematis 'Elsa Spaeth'
