Hi,
Need help re identification. This is a creeper which is referred to as 'clematis'. I don't know whether it is an Indian plant. The flowers come in batches, already there has been three sets this summer. Flowers have a sweet scent, more prominent in the evening.
 
Regards

Hi Kshounish,
 
The flowers look like those of Clematis montana, though the leaves are quite different. Clematis spp. are found in the Himalayas - in fact, the range extends from Afghanistan to China.
This is possibly a hybrid variety. You did not mention where you found it.
 
Regards,
Leena.

Tropical Garden Plants by Bose, Chowdhury & Sharma gives two species similar to the ones posted as below:
"Clematis flammula: ......leaves bipinnate, often trifoliate;.......
Clematis gouriana: .....Leaflets 5, ovate toothed, to 5cm long, upper one sometimes 3-lobed....."  
 
I think this may decide the Id, if it is one of the species. Kshounish, you may please check the leaves & let everybody know, if it's possible.

Dear All,

this seems to be a pic of C. flammula. It looks very much like the
specimen I had once. C. flammula is freely available in nurseries in
and around Calcutta while C. gouriana is not that common.
