Can you identify this clematis?

lismari(5)June 18, 2013

Bought this one on sale at Home Depot. The lighter-colored flower at the top was the bloom it had at HD. The smaller, deeper-colored flowers bloomed after I planted it.
Now, the ID stick in the plant said it was a "Snow Queen" clematis, but I know it must be a mistake because "Snow Queen is a white clematis, right?

Anyway,if anyone can identify this one for me I'd appreciate it. The colors in the photo are true to life.

Thanks!

Looks like my Moonfleet. They open deep purple and fade to a pale purple (almost white). Also I know HD had many Moonfleets near me this year :)

Well, here I am again, still wondering what the heck this Clematis is! I thought that, yes...it must be a Moonfleet, but now in its second year, I noticed that it's one of my first clematis to bloom. It set buds in April, and bloomed in mid May! The blooms are large, too. I went to Clematis on the Web and entered the info on this one, and the search came back as 'Baltyk, which is an early flowering Group 2 clem. I'm now assuming that this mystery clem of mine is a group 2, but is it a Baltyk? Here's a pic I took this past weekend. Any opinions? Thanks!
