My mother had a huge Clematis armandii growing on a wall of her house in Vancouver BC. As I recall it did bloom in very late fall or winter.
Other than the lovely fragrant (! ) flowers I do recall that hers was evergreen, and had very large, long angular leaves that were also exceptionally dark green. They might have been 5 or 6in. long. (but it was a long time ago . . )
Can you stop near that plant some time (maybe early in the morning?) and get out of your car, to see if its flowers are fragrant, get a picture and a good look at the leaves? Is it in someone's yard, or can you take a cutting??
