Lovely Fermi, do you know it's parentage? I'm a sucker for Clematis - obviously it withstands hot dry conditions reasonably well....
I think it's a seedling from Clematis tangutica
cheers

Just to confirm earlier points made on this topic, Clematis are worth growing in mediterranean climates. You might need something to cover the bare patches left in summer, however. My Clematis are springing back to life after summer. Clematis 'Piilu' died back to ground level but within the last 2 weeks new shoots have appeared, about 1.5m in length and it has started flowering. Clematis 'The President' and Clematis 'Mrs Cholmondeley' didn't die back but stopped growing and looked a little tatty. They are starting to show new growth now and should give some autumn flowers.
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0C. Summer temperatures up to 40C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

David your clematis are lovely.  I saw some Cematis growing in a garden in Malia village which is situated below the foothills of Mount  Troodos. They were splendid. I won't give in to this new temptation. Hope others will and post their photos.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.
