Sorry you didn't get any replies! My summer is soo busy lately that I rarely have time to check all my watched forums!

Personally, it could be, sometimes it hard to tell with a young plant but personally, I don't think it is Jackmanii Superba, yours has some white surrounding the center. I don't see that in any of the images of Clematis 'Jackmanii Superba'

Thanks, Sue, you are absolutely right about the 'white' center after looking at the photos of Superba. I wonder who she is.

Well keep adding pictures as it grows, we may be able to narrow it down eventually.
