Hmmm.....I'm gonna say Morning Glory for $200, Alex.

Looking at the actual blooms, it looks like there is a white "thoat" if you will, and the leaves are heart shaped like Morning Glories. I've had the purple clematis before, and the leaves are split and have several petals, not one bloom like this. I would agree there are more than one - but where I live (zone 5) they aren't perennial. Grown from seed - and planted in the spring. They are spectacular, though.

Did I win anything???

no - not one cent. if you look at the site linked you will see the exact same photo when author talks about pruning clematis. frankly I never ever thought about pruning clematis- not sure why I didn't. if mine end up looking like this the mail man will put a hit out for me I'm sure!

I always prune mine. The first time I did it I almost threw up - I just knew I had killed it. I did it about late Sept. or early October. It was nothing but a couple of sticks when I got done (I was frustrated - another story!!). After the winter - when the spring finally came I was so happy to see new green growth. By April-May it was huge, and beautiful. Bloomed wonderfully. I always thought it had to have "old wood" to grow onto - not true. Here at this house we have a white Sweet Autumn Clematis that is absolutely huge. I cut it off in the spring all the way down. I put a white garden "string type" trellis draped around the light pole it climbs on - and train it up the strings. Right now it is about 3 feet wide and about 5 feet tall. Full and beautiful - and when it blooms it will be spectacular. I'll try and get some pics up. This spring I took pruning shears and simply cut down the middle of the plant, cut through the string trellis thing, and "peeled" if off from around the lamp post and then cut it off from the bottom. The whole thing came off in one big piece (which I put in the mulch pile). The trellis things are dirt cheap - and I already have one bought for next spring!!!! Be not afraid!!!!!

I have a sweet autumn one too which will be gorgeous soon and I cut it back to power clean the railing of the deck where it climbs. very hardy and big bang for the buck.
