Please ID my clematis

I got a mislabeled clematis from Fairweather Gardens. Still love it though and will keep it. The only double white I see in their catalog is Dutchess of Edinburgh But these have a lot more green in them than any picture I've found on the net. Any opinions here?

There was a thread a few days ago where someone requested help IDing a green species. I told them I thought it was D of E and posted a picture of mine which I will repost. On mine, early blooms, especially in the shade, have varying amounts of green. In the picture of my D of E you can see a completely white bloom in the sun, an almost completely green one in the shade along with one that is about 50-50. Later in the season all blooms are completely white.

Thanks Bob and Josey!
Although mine is in full sun, I just got it this spring and so maybe it will brighten up once its established but they definitely look similar to the picture Bob posted. BTW, I thought I was getting Purpurea Plena Elegans.

Yes, especially since it was my second time buying it. The first one disappeared.

Well

Actually, to tell the truth, I think I weeded it by mistake.
