I've seen a clematis recently with lots of quite small,very very, dark purple flowers. Does anyone have an idea which one it might be...I don't have a photo because it's growing right outside someones living room window and I don't want to get arrested!!!!



Possibly C alpina...

Have you thought about knocking on the door too ask? I knocked on a neighbour's door 2 weeks ago to ask about a plant. They were very friendly and offered to give me a cutting when the time is right. :)

there are quite a few, such as alpina 'Frances Rivis', Macropetala blue bird or Pauline, or Maidwell hall, and C Roguchi,

How small is your small? I have a tiny Clematis × aromatica, which is a Integrifolia group also a 'Etoile Violette' which is a Viticella group out at the moment the Etoile is smaller than the Jackmanii type and has masses of flowers.
