Is this a clematis?
2 years ago I bought a clematis from ebay - it was advertised as a purple clematis. It grew into a large vine last year, but did not bear a single flower. The places the vine touched the ground, it rooted and now the original plant and the places it rooted have sprouted with vigorous new growth. I am yet to see any buds. I am wondering if what I have is really a clematis. Can someone look at these pictures and tell me if it is a clematis and if so which one is it? And is it normal that it did not produce any flowers last 2 years and will it bear any flowers this year? I did not prune it last year, but this year I pruned it down to 2-3 feet.
