Beautiful indeed. It looks like some species of Clematis.

Re: Clematis?

C. alpina is native mainly to the European Alps, as its name suggests, and is among the hardiest of clematis. In virtually all the cultivated forms it grows to a height of 6' to 8'. It is quite properly called a climber, but in truth may prefer to ramble. Being fibrous-rooted, it does not demand as much root-space as we customarily give to the large-flowered hybrids, and since the entire plant is compact, it is well suited to limited space or even a container. For most gardeners the two distinctions of the species and its cultivars are the abundant Spring flowers and the subsequent seedheads that go through several stages from green-and-gold to feathery gray, and often stay on the vine for months. It has 4 tepals as does the flower shown
