Clematis for color

This one looks like a hybrid of clematis armandii. The clematises here have names that are very different from the usual English names. In the past weeks, every sort of clematis has gone on sale, with photos of every sort of colour and doubles, semi doubles, to singles, all number of petals and bell-shaped to star-shaped ones. The bright yellow or lemony yellow ones and crimson red ones are novelties this year.
