Clematis ID?

Hi, folks. This is from a plant given to me by a friend who doesn't know the variety. It looks like H.F. Young, but seems lighter and more of a powdery blue than H.F. In this pic, there's a different clem in the background, Elsa Spaeth. It's the one in front I'm unsure of. Any thoughts? Thanks, Gary

Nice plants. It looks like you have yourself a Mrs Cholmondely.

RE: Clematis ID?

I think it is Mrs. Cholmondely too. The shape of the tepals and the gaps between them are typical of Mrs C.

RE: Clematis ID?

Many thanks, Joe and BoS. I'm happy to know I have Mrs. C. out there! Gary
