Clematis ID Help, please

I planted some clematis that I got at bargain prices last fall and but many were not labeled.

Clematis NOID 2

Fireworks or Killian Donahue? It looks like the photo of Killian Donahue in the Donahue catalog but not like the one in the on-line catalog; anther is white with red tips.
bloom opens with pale purple with bar and fades to this.
Today a new blossom opened very deep fuchsia in center with just a slight pale purple edge

Clematis NOID 3 This looks like NOID 1 but is on a different plant. Are they the same?

1. and 3. could be the same. Could be Barbara Harrington.

2. looks like Killian Donahue but there are several who look similar. Don't think it is Fireworks.

RE: Clematis ID Help, please

Thanks. I also don't think it is Fireworks. Could 1 & 3 be Westerplatte? The anthers are red.

RE: Clematis ID Help, please

Westerplatte has longer pointier tepals if that makes sense. Barbara Harrington has that same rounded look.

Here is a link that might be useful: Barbara Harrington

The top one looks very much like a Scartho Gem blooming in my garden right now.
