Clematis viticella from Kashmir. This beautiful species I had earlier found in California, but now I find it planted in newly developed Hazuribagh Garden in Srinagar, Kashmir.

Description of the plant Flora of North America

Description: http://www.efloras.org/florataxon.aspx?flora_id=1&taxon_id=233500418

A good example of tautonym , the plant was previously known as Viticella viticella which I hope was rejected by ICBN to provide the new name Clematis viticella.

I think it may be Clematis 'Jackmanii'  as per images, details and references herein.

Clematis x jackmanii as explained in another post.

I hope you are right Garg ji, Looking at the confusion on various websites, I think it would be right to name it as C. x jackmanii (both GRIN and Kew database), TPL and Plants of the World Online list C. jackmanii, but even those websites which name it Clematis 'Jackmanii' (as you have suggested) accept it to be be interspecific hybrid.

originally  said to be four petaled

pictures in mr Jackman's own book from 1800s  shows four and five petals

to me this is what I saw as labeled  at RHS several years ago
